A conference in Wichita this weekend aims to give couples the tools to strengthen their marriages.
Statistics show about half of adults in the US are married, a record low. The numbers are even lower for African-Americans, about 31 percent.
Sherdeill Breathett, president of the Kansas African-American Healthy Marriage Initiative, says their mission is to celebrate and provide models of a healthy marriage. She says as a whole, marriage is on the decline.
