What is a Weekend to Remember?

A FamilyLife Weekend to Remember Getaway is a marriage conference uniquely designed to help you and your partner escape the daily grind and focus on your relationship. For most couples it’s a chance to reconnect, re-establish the foundation and rekindle romance. For others, it’s a fresh start. For some, it will be the weekend that saves a marriage.

By learning and applying timeless principles for a healthy marriage from our trained team of speakers, you and your partner can:

  • Connect with each other on a deeper level
  • Improve the way you communicate
  • Anticipate conflict and handle it more constructively
  • Experience marriage the way it was designed to be

Marriage is a lifelong adventure of growing together through every age and stage of life. The happiest couples are those who commit to learning skills that help them weather difficult seasons and deal confidently with relationship challenges.
