Better Marriages Getaway

“2020 Marriage Vision”
Join us in Raleigh, NC, during the weekend of April 17-18, 2020, for another fun weekend of skills building and fun.
Seeing eye-to-eye, knee-to-knee, and heart-to-heart will be our theme for this fun-packed weekend together. Have fun on Friday evening as we look back on the high points of our marriage and get to know each other in a fun and relaxing way. Attend workshops on Saturday that will help you meet the challenges of your marriage and assist you in creating a vision that will carry you forward in your relationship.
