The rate of new marriages has fallen dramatically since the 60s.  Research estimates the rate has dropped more than 50 percent. Divorce and single parenthood have doubled during the last 5o years. Yet, we are seeing a new frontier where relationships are taking on a variety of dynamics. Appropriately, our 7th Annual Conference tackles the challenges brought about by the evolution of changing relationships in the 21st century.

If so many men, so many minds, certainly so many hearts, so many kinds of love.
— Leo Tolstoy
