together for it, but we were and I’m now so hopeful we can achieve an exceptional marriage”.

“This conference has done all I wanted it to. We have grown closer together, talked more than we have in 36 years, aired hurts from the last few years, and found a new reason to keep going”.

“It has demystified sex. It has given us tools to discuss sex frankly and without embarrassment. At last!”.

“This Getaway would be the best quality decision we have made together as a couple. Life changing and inspiring”.
