Has anyone here ever been to a marriage encounter weekend? Darling Husband and I just got back and it was amazing! We’ve only been married for a year and a half and were a bit skeptical at first, but the weekend really helped bring us even closer together!
Darling Husband isn’t much for feelings and emotions, but he really opened up during the weekend and I think we learned a lot about ourselves and eachother. The tools we learned there will definetely benefit us later in our marriage!
Anyone else ever attended a weekend or known anyone who has? What did you think of it?

@LlamaWife: We are actually excited to go to ours once we are married. We went to our engaged encounters weekend with the thoughts: “Can’t wait to leave. Let’s get this over with.” However, it was really great for us. We got so much closer in that weekend alone and solved a few problems we had been having. In every day life we can’t talk about our relationship for long periods of time, so some issues go unresolved which brings up more arguments but when we could fully focus on eachother for an entire weekend…it made everything smoother in our relationship afterward.

@Heatherloveskenny: i couldn’t agree with you more – we had the exact same experience. Definitely worth it.

Any suggestions for a similar course that is non-religous?
