Who We Are

Live the Life is passionately committed to reducing divorce in our community.  Jacksonville once ranked as one of the top 10 Divorce Capitals (highest divorce rates) in America, according to a 2014 survey in Men’s Health magazine. Live the Life is working to lower the divorce rate and strengthen marriages and families through skills based relationship and marriage education programs, conferences, singles retreats, and youth development programs. Our partners include non-profits, churches, schools and corporations throughout Northeast Florida.



We use a powerful two-generation approach: Deploy proven marriage building resources to reduce the divorce rate in order to strengthen families and our community AND empower the next generation to make healthy choices that lead to success.


From 2015-2017, the divorce rate in Duval County declined by 28% supported by high quality marriage strengthening programs and resources from Live the Life along with local churches and other community partners. Since 2015 we have provided access to relationship education to nearly 20,000 men and women in Northeast Florida.
