The Engaged Encounter Weekend is a couple-oriented experience. Most weekends have a group of twenty-five engaged couples. Although the format involves presentations given to the group by the presenting team, it is really a sharing time for you as a couple. You will spend a good part of the weekend sharing and dialoguing with your partner on a variety of topics. This sharing has two parts: first a writing and reflection time and second, a sharing time. Again, this is done privately between you as a couple.
The success of the weekend for you as a couple is directly related to how much effort you put into it. Please try to remember that a weekend away from the stress of jobs, family and wedding plans can be a once-in-an-engagement occurrence. We believe that this is a wonderful opportunity for your relationship to grow and for you to renew and strengthen your feelings for one another. We hope it will be of value not only in the time before your wedding, but also in your lifetime together. –The Baltimore Engaged Encounter Community.
