SCHEDULE

Do I have to attend all the sessions?

In order to get the most out of the weekend, we suggest all sessions be attended.

What are the hours for the Weekend to Remember? Where can I see those?

They vary each day; however, the event starts at 7 p.m. Friday night and ends Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Go to the itinerary page for the complete schedule of the weekend.

ATTENDANCE

Is this a conference for engaged couples? Dating?

Both. It’s great content for anyone in a serious romantic relationship.

My spouse won't attend. Can I come alone?

Yes. Even though your spouse can’t or won’t attend, you will still receive a lot of valuable information you can start applying to your marriage right away.

I've already attended the Weekend to Remember. Will it be the same this time?

Though the content remains the same, each speaker is different in how he or she presents it.  Even though the content remains basically unchanged because it’s time-tested information, due to different speakers and different seasons of marriage, you will gain something different each time you attend.

Can same-sex couples attend a Weekend to Remember?

FamilyLife is dedicated to guiding healthy and struggling marriages through the application of biblical principles. We encourage and welcome anyone to attend our events, but we support God’s design for marriage as set forth in the Bible. This blueprint involves a man and a woman first being committed to loving and serving God, and then committing to loving and serving each other for a lifetime.

Weekend to Remember therefore aligns with our beliefs and does not address gay or lesbian relationships. If a couple chooses to attend, they are typically comfortable with the biblically-based guidance provided, similar to what they may receive in a church.

BENEFITS & EFFECTIVENESS

Does it work?

We have thousands of testimonies from couples who have been enriched by attending the Weekend to Remember marriage getaway.

What is the benefit of this getaway?

There are many benefits to a marriage getaway. It’s an opportunity for you and your spouse to get away from life’s distractions and just focus on each other. This gives you opportunities to talk about things you would not otherwise discuss that are important for developing your relationship. You have the chance to listen to gifted speakers talk about things that every couple faces, learn time-tested tools to help strengthen your marriage and hear real-life stories from the speakers about their own marriages. Couple’s projects are used to apply the truths in practical ways to your own marriage during and after the weekend. Also, the “date night” on Saturday offers you and your spouse the opportunity to spend a romantic evening alone.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Are children allowed in the ballroom or in any session?

Though FamilyLife cares deeply about your family, in order to keep your weekend free of distractions and as a courtesy to other guests, we do not allow children in our sessions, including nursing infants.

Is this counseling? Are there counselors there? Will there be someone to talk to during or after the conference?

This is not a counseling session and there aren’t any counselors on-site. However, each one of our volunteers can and would love to pray with you if you’d like.

Want to Know More?

How much does the getaway cost? Should I attend again? Can I bring my kids? What’s this “group name” all about?

If you’ve got questions, we’ll do our best to answer them here. And if we don’t, give us a call! We’re available Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. (CST) at 1-800-358-6329.
