FINANCIAL RESULTS AND IMPACT
24-7 COMMITMENT is just as committed to integrity, transparency, effective use of our resources and the impact we make with them as we are to marriages.
We applied for federal non-profit approval status in February 2015 and received that approval in July 2015. 2015 is our first year of financial reporting as a 501(c)3 non-profit.

- Married women are about 30 percent more likely to rate their health excellent or very good than the same-aged single women were. Married men showed similar advantages over unmarried men. Married men and women are also less likely than singles to suffer from long-term chronic illness or disabilities.
- Married men and women report less depression, less anxiety and lower levels of other types of psychological distress than do those who are single, divorced or widowed.
- Researchers have found that the act of getting married actually makes people happier and healthier; conversely, getting a divorce reverses these gains - even when we take into account prior measures of mental and emotional health.
- The cost of divorce is high. Even if the income is divided fairly between the former spouses, the standard of living of the family drops by about 25 percent. No amount of child support can change the basic math: It costs more to live separately than together, and the money must come from somewhere
"Thank you for this one paragraph in particular that has encouraged me to keep reading Honor & Commitment. You see, I'm one of those fire wives who has been so jaded by the lack of honor and commitment of the "brotherhood" that the last thing I want to do is be a fire life cheerleader. Because I'm new to the Fire Wife Sisterhood online, I kinda thought 'oh geez, is this all about how great my husband is and how terrible it is that I kinda represent his department and the man he's turned into (20 year career)'. So I'm relieved that this book and sisterhood is turning out to be way different and so relatable. Thank you all for being so honest and having the Honor & Commitment to truly change the culture of the fire life!"
