Couples of all faiths are welcome to register for National Marriage Encounter weekends.  The facilitating couples will present short talks based on Christ-based principles.

How is National Marriage Encounter different from other Marriage Encounter organizations?

If you do some internet research, you will find that other Marriage Encounter organizations offer denomination-specific weekends.  National Marriage Encounter is different in that while we offer Christ-based talks, we encourage people of all faiths and denominations to attend our week-ends.  National Marriage Encounter is not associated with Worldwide Marriage Encounter. 

Are encountering couples expected to dialogue with each other in front of a group?

No.  All dialogue between you and your spouse will be in private. Only the facilitating couples will present talks in front of the whole group.
