Why an Arch?

 

The arch is probably one of the oldest architectural features in the world. It comes in every shape and size and can be very beautiful when well designed and built. Arches are to be found one way or another in every building. They usually join together two inherently unstable structures; the two pillars on either side. But when an arch joins the two sides the whole becomes immeasurable and inherently stronger and in times of serious instability (eg, during an earthquake) one is advised to stand under a well constructed arch as it is likely to be the safest place and last longest. We think that those features amongst others neatly encapsulate the best features of healthy marriage and The Marriage Foundation intends to advocate their advantages relentlessly.
