Ahh I really want to go to it but at my Church you have the option to either do Engaged Encounter or 4 2-hr sessions with a sponsor couple from the Church and we weren’t sure if we’d be able to do EE due to FI’s work schedule so opted for the 2nd choice… and now he’s switched jobs and we CAN go to EE but since we’ve already done the sessions he doesn’t want to go to EE. Since he’s not Catholic, he wants to do the least amount requirements possible haha I guess he thinks getting married in my Church of choice is enough! I’m still working to convince him to go! It’s in a month! What all did they have y’all do while there?

That sounds great! I’m definitely interested but I guess we’ll do a marriage retreat if we don’t get around to this one!

Totally agree, we did EE and thought it was a very special time to learn so much about each other and your relationship!

We wanted to do EE before we found out my church requires it. I’m looking forward to it! I’m glad you think it’s worthwhile.

EE was alright for us.  We got it done aaages ago, almost right after we got engaged, and we were stunned at the number of couples who were only a few months out from their wedding who had NEVER discussed most of the topics covered.  At that point in our engaged relationship we had covered, in great detail, most of the topics already.  We found that most of the topics they covered were REALLY good to bring up before a marriage but that the writing/talking part was a bit of overkill.   Each EE is different I’ve heard, but be prepared to write so much your hand falls off and to talk to the point where you can talk no more.  

However it was a bonding experience for us.  Plus we had wine in our rooms and wine makes everything better.  🙂
