Frequently Asked Questions about Marriage Encounter

♥ Who is Marriage Encounter for?

Any married couple who desires a richer, fuller life together. A marriage can never be too good. Marriage Encounter is designed to deepen and enrich the joys a couple share together, whether they have been married for only a short time, or for many years. Priests and other religious are also welcome and encouraged to attend. 

 

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is faithful to the Roman Catholic Church's teaching that marriage is a covenant that exists between one man and one woman.  Any reference to marriage or couple made by WWME is in this context.

♥ Why would priests or other religious attend?

The Marriage Encounter Weekend is designed in such a way that both priests and religious can participate fully. The principles of love, commitment and effective communication translate quite readily to the relationship between a priest and his parish or any group to whom he ministers as well as to a religious community.

Priests who have made an Encounter weekend call the experience "life enhancing."

Worldwide Marriage Encounter invites you to attend. Please take advantage of our networking process by which we can help you get a replacement for the weekend you choose to attend.



♥ Is there a specific religious orientation to the weekend?

Marriage Encounter does present God as a focus for successful marriage. There are many faith expressions of Marriage Encounter Weekends - Catholic, as well as several Protestant denominations. While the Weekend may be presented in a given Faith expression, each is open to couples from other orientations. The opportunities of the Weekend go beyond the boundaries of any one expression.

♥ What happens at a Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend?

A series of presentations are given by a team of married couples and a priest. Each presentation allows you and your spouse a rare opportunity to look at yourselves as individuals, then to look at your marriage and relationship to one another, and finally to look at your relationship to God and to the world. The weekend starts at 8:00 on Friday night and runs until about 5:00 on Sunday afternoon. Meals are provided.

♥ Does the weekend respect the couple's privacy?

YES! The weekend is oriented strictly to each individual couple. You concentrate on your spouse to such an extent that you are hardly aware of the other couples present. The presentations are given to the group as a whole. After each presentation, the husband and wife have time in the privacy of their room for their own personal discussion.

♥ How much does the weekend cost?

On the weekend, you will be asked to make a contribution. This contribution will cover the expenses of lodging, food, and materials for the Weekend.

A non-refundable application fee of $75 is required to confirm your reservation, food and lodging. There is limited capacity, so early registration is encouraged.

No couple is ever denied the chance to renew their marriage because they are facing financial difficulties. This concern should not influence your decision to attend a Marriage Encounter Weekend.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a tax-exempt organization. The Internal Revenue Service has ruled that donation contributions made in connection with the Weekend, excluding the non-refundable deposit mentioned above, are deductible only to the extent that the contribution exceeds the amount of goods and services received. Information as to that amount will be given to couples attending the Weekend.

Contributions made on or in connection with the Marriage Encounter weekend are made confidentially.

♥ How does a Marriage Encounter enhance a marriage?

The encounter weekend teaches a communication technique which permits each couple to explore important areas of their relationship in a spirit of love and understanding. By continuing the newly-acquired technique begun on the weekend, husbands and wives continually grow closer together to live more joyful and purposeful lives.

While not an essential part of the experience, the availability of a community of others who have completed the Weekend and share similar values provides a supportive environment for even further growth.

♥ Where are Marriage Encounter weekends held in the LA West area?
