What We Believe
At Lasting, we believe that there is nothing more important than the health of your marriage.
Many research studies reveal the importance of marriage:
- A healthy marriage is as vital to your overall health as diet and exercise. 🏋️
- People in healthy marriages live 10 years longer on average, and marriages in distress can lead to a variety of physical health issues. 🏥
- The main factor in lifelong happiness 😀 and satisfaction is maintaining long-term, warm, intimate relationships.
- The key factor in the cognitive, emotional, and social development of children 🍼 is the emotional connection of the parents.
Simply put, we believe it's our mission to ensure that all people have access to a healthy marriage tool. That's our app, and we're sticking to it.
