Dialogue

On our Marriage Encounter Experience we were introduced to a communication technique called Dialogue.  Our "dialogue" involves two main parts.   First, we write a Love Letter to each other on a topic that is relevant to our relationship.  The focus of our letter is on our feelings about the topic.  In our letter we try to describe our feelings in a way that our spouse can come to know us on a deeper level.  The second part of the technique is to read each other's Love letter and continue to explore the feelings we have shared.

Dialogue is something that we have chosen to do every day because it allows us to talk about what is really going on in our hearts, and what is weighing on our minds.  It enables us to get beyond the kids schedules, the stuff on our "To-Do" list and the petty stuff in our lives.  This is a gift of our Marriage Encounter Experience that keeps on giving.  If you would like to learn more about this potentially life changing technique, consider attending a Marriage Encounter Experience near you!

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…

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.
