Love Salt Light
“Whatever the quality of your marriage now, it can always be better”– Dr. Gary Chapman

Love Salt Light is an online initiative for marriage.
About 18 months ago we were watching TV when we heard a shocking statistic: the average length of a marriage in Australia is just 12 years. It’s certainly not the vow for life that we pledge to each other on our wedding days.
Love Salt Light was born out of a desire to see married couples of all ages and stages flourish, resulting in marriages that stand the test of time. We want to see marriage in Australia and beyond, be a tradition and covenant people desire, value and uphold – not one that is seen as unnecessary in our generation, or disposable when things get difficult.
We tend to lead busy lives and become so distracted that we often leave our marriages up to chance to be successful.
Love Salt Light offers an online community of like-minded married couples who want to grow their love for a lifetime and who choose to intentionally take action to strengthen their marriage.
We’ll present you with a thought for a moment of your day that could lead to momentum in your marriage, and turn into a movement across our city.
We’d love for you to join us as we celebrate honest, growing and imperfect marriages.

“Marriages thrive on creativity and new initiatives.”– Nicky Lee
(The Marriage Book)
If you want something to change, you have to make space for it.
We do not claim to think that we are experts in any way shape or form, but we simply have the desire to see our own marriage be strengthened, and uphold the vows we made to each other for life.
Love Salt Light will help you keep your love blooming daily by sharing resources we’ve found helpful, insightful quotes, stories of other everyday couples and date ideas. We want to use this platform to plant seeds that could help you to add new flavours and illuminate new colours in your marriage. Small investments lead to large growth over time.
To join our community, follow our Instagram account @lovesaltlight You’re welcome to comment, share and join in discussions with other couples. In a small way, our community could bring hope and solutions to struggling and dying marriages.
To encourage husbands and wives to intentionally grow in love,
and commit to seeing their marriage thrive to the fullest ‘till death do them part.
