March 27 is Black Marriage Day. But what's race got to do with it?

Nisa Muhammad, founder of Black Marriage Day, doesn't care about placing blame. She just wants to change things through her work with Wedded Bliss Foundation, where she provides relationship counseling and classes for teens, singles and couples. "I want to create cultural change where marriage becomes the norm in the black community rather than the exception," Muhammad says. "This may take generations to accomplish, but every Black Marriage Day is another year closer to the goal."

What do you think? Would an increase in black marriages benefit the black community and society at large?
