Black Marriage day is observed nationally on the 4th Sunday of March, this event was started by the Wedded Bliss Foundation several years ago due to the rates of marriage in the Black community declining over the last several decades while the rates of divorce, separation, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock births and children residing in female-headed households increased.
