What does a Weekend cost?
The cost of attending a Weekend (room, meals and other expenses) has already been paid for you through the donations of other couples. Others have paid this cost (nearly $600 per couple) as a gift to you. There is a one-time $80 registration fee to cover other costs. The future of United Marriage Encounter has always been dependent on donations. Near the end of the Weekend, you will be invited to contribute to future Weekends for other couples. You are free to decide how much you want to give so others can have the same opportunity. Your donation is tax-deductible in the United States. (United Marriage Encounter is a non-proﬁt organization and is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability which reﬂects the highest standards of Christian stewardship.)

How much Christian teaching is integrated into the Weekend?
The primary focus of the Weekend is to provide couples practical methods for improving communication, growing closer to each other, and strengthening the bond between husband and wife. We believe a successful marriage is a Christ-centered marriage. The Christian content is integral but not intrusive.
What if we do not go to church, or are non-believers?
United Marriage Encounter welcomes all faiths, including non-practicing Christians as well as non-believers. Since our primary mission is to improve marriage, one man one woman legally married, any such married couple can enjoy and greatly beneﬁt from attending a United Marriage Encounter Weekend. Although there are discussions relating to a Christ-centered marriage as part of a successful marriage, the Christian content is presented without preaching.
We are interested in attending. Can we invite another couple to go with us?
If you’d like to give another couple a chance to improve their marriage as well, by all means, invite them. Contact the United Marriage Encounter ofﬁce and we’ll send additional brochures and registration information to you. You can also refer the couple to our website (www.unitedmarriage.org) for online registration.
Do you offer counseling on a Weekend?
A United Marriage Encounter Weekend does not provide counseling for couples or individuals.
