This four-minute video excerpt from "Let's Get Married" looks at one of the marriage movement's key activists, Mike McManus, who has enlisted clergy across America to promote the message that marriage matters, especially for children. Also profiled is one of the marriage movement's early converts, Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating. He asked state economists why Oklahoma had so much poverty and they came back to him with their answer: There's too much divorce. Keating subsequently launched a $10 million program in 1999 to strengthen marriages and reduce the divorce rate. Finally, viewers meet a young Oklahoma woman -- twice divorced and with four kids -- whom the marriage movement wants to persuade to marry smarter.
