‘Why Can’t A Woman Be More Like A Man??’

Benjamin Franklin once said: "Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterwards". It has also been said that marriages are made in heaven, but we are responsible for the maintenance work. The "Marriage Encounter" movement is dedicated to keeping marriages alive and exciting. Over 65,000 couples every year go a Marriage Encounter weekend designed to "make good marriages better". Nowadays with double career marriages and endless busyness consuming our free time, marriages need more encouragement than ever.

Every couple who gets married wants their relationship to be lifelong and filled with great warmth and closeness.  "Marriage Encounter" offers a way to rediscover that original specialness and intimacy. In Marriage Encounter they teach a new method of communication that reconnects us to our marriage partner in a brand new way.
