Worldwide Marriage Encounter Experience

 Looking for a way to increase the love and romance in your marriage???

The Worldwide Marriage Encounter Experience gives married couples the opportunity to get away from life’s distractions and focus on each other.  You’ll hear from a “Presenting Team” of married couples as they talk about their own real-life stories.   

The emphasis of the Experience is on the communication between husbands and wives. Each couple will have their own personal space for private conversation. 

Topics covered at a Worldwide Marriage Encounter Experience include: 
  • -Your individual personality style and how that affects your relationship 
  • -A communication technique called ‘dialogue’ 
  • -The art of listening 
  • -Things that influence your marriage – expectations, culture, upbringing, etc 
  • -The stages of relationship: Romance, Disillusionment and Joy 
  • -The connection between faith and marriage 
  • -Five Tools for keeping your relationship a priority 

The specific communication technique called ‘dialogue’ is a practical tool that you will learn to use, and one that you can continue to use at home.   

After the Worldwide Marriage Encounter Experience, couples return to their life and families refreshed with renewed commitment to each other. Every marriage deserves that kind of attention!

Great Sex!

Sex between a married couple is not only good, it’s very good. If you read the research and surveys, you will find that married couples experience better and more frequent sex than non-married couples. Married couples are healthier, happier, and live longer. When we went on a WorldWide Marriage Encounter weekend, we were more than a little surprised when a priest told us that our love-making is good, is important for us, and is important to the world. He encouraged us to “make mad passionate love!”
    So, why has married sex become something else? Society and media portray sex for married couples as dull and lifeless, a tool used to manipulate, something to joke about, and something that - beyond the newlywed phase- gradually drifts away. We’ve been sold this bill of goods, and we often buy into it! What we really crave in our sex life is to give and receive something powerful- to experience the depths of our passion and love for each other, to be as intimate as possible. Our freq…

Advice From a Divorce Lawyer

Yes, this is a strange twist.  We recently heard about James J Sexton's book, "If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late."  James is a divorce attorney from New York, who started noticing some patterns after 20 years of working with couples whose marriages were ending.

Marriage Manners Matter

"Fine!" and "Whatever!" These 2 powerful words have the incredible potential to bring nearly any discussion to a screeching halt.  They send the insensitive message of "I don't care. Discussion over.  Period. Full stop!"   As married couples, we have probably used these or similar words.  And, if we have raised children we have probably employed time out, taken the car keys or other forms of discipline.

Those 2 little words are not  the focus of this blog.

Sex on Days Ending in 'Y'

Lovemaking is one of the most important aspects of a healthy marriage.  Yet there are so many impediments and inhibitions to making love once those wonderful Honeymoon years are over.

Tone of Voice

Something that we’ve become increasingly aware of in our marriage is how our tone of voice so significantly affects our communication – for better or for worse! It is remarkable how something so seemingly small can make such a huge impact on whether our communication is healthy, productive, and enriching or debilitating, disheartening, and provocative. Believe it or not, tone of voice is huge. WE would go as far as to say tone of voice is at the root of most of the small hurts we experience in our relationship.
Perhaps it would be easier to make our case using an example. Recently, we were trying to get out of the house to go to church and be on time. I (Stephanie) have to admit I am typically the one who is running behind trying to get one last thing put away or rushing because I did not plan my time well. Paul will often playfully turn the hall light on and off letting me know he is by the door ready and waiting. Usually I will laugh it off and tell him I am coming. This particular…
