Marriage is a gift from God. It was back in the very beginning of time that God saw that man was lonely, and wanted to give man someone to be with. We see this in Genesis 2:18, “Now the Lord God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—a counterpart who is] suitable and complementary for him.”
Each day we should be relaying on the Holy Spirit to guide and direct our marriage in such a way that truly changes our world around us. The way we interact and love our spouse effects our children, family, friends, co-workers and churches. There is no better way to display Christ’s love for the church than seeing a husband lay down his life for his wife.
“And to the husbands, you are to demonstrate your love for your wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us, his bride. For he died for us, sacrificing himself.” – Ephesians 5:25 (The Passion Translation)
Whether you’ve been married for decades, have children and grandchildren and seen it all as a couple, or you’re still newlyweds in the “honeymoon” phase, nothing will help your marriage like spending quality time together attending a marriage conference. It’s not necessarily for those who need it or are “struggling”. Attending a marriage conference can help strengthen your marriage and give you tools to have a marriage that is fully alive and burning for Jesus Christ. Below are the top marriage conferences in the nation, covering a vast variety of topics, locations and needs. It’s time that the body of Christ shows the world the power of marriage and that a marriage with Christ in the center leads to the best life!

Top Marriage Conferences: The Best Solution For Your Marriage
Presented by: FamilyLife
Remember how captivating it was when you first fell in love with your spouse? Every moment was special. As real life takes over, that memory can grow less vivid, and you might not feel like the center of their world as often. That’s where the Weekend to Remember® marriage retreat from FamilyLife comes in.
The two-and-a-half day romantic weekend getaway is a time to be together as a couple to invest in and strengthen the foundation of your marriage, no matter how firm or fragile it is. By getting away from the distractions of life, you can fortify your most important relationship and work toward building wonderful memories together, for decades to come.
The Weekend to Remember marriage retreat is not a large group counseling session or small group discussion. You won’t be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with anyone.
You will listen to engaging talks from marriage experts, then take private time alone with your spouse to work on the concepts you studied. When you leave, you will have an assortment of powerful, Christ-centered communication tools to use for years to come.
We have over 90 Weekend to Remember events annually across the globe.

Presented by: Laugh Your Way, America!
Why a “laughter” approach? For one simple reason: to overcome the male objection to a seminar. Let’s be honest, a marriage seminar isn’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of “a fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that… Familiar with the fact that women are usually much more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men.
Multiple locations throughout the U.S.
Picture this… You blissfully awaken to the soft rays of the sun warming your face… step out of your over-sized guest room onto your lanai to delight in the tropical surroundings… take an early morning stroll along the sandy beach, hand-in-hand with your spouse… then head over to the elegant Ritz-Carlton ballroom to sing praises to the Lord during morning worship led by MercyMe, followed by a teaching from Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages… then it’s off to the pool to take a dip in the refreshing aqua blue pool… and that’s just the beginning!
The Love Song Couples Getaway will allow you and your spouse to escape from the stresses of day-to-day life by spending a week together, enjoying beaches, sunsets, and most importantly, time with each other and the Lord. Join us on the Love Song Couples Getaway at the exquisite 5-Star Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, Maui, and create memories that will last a lifetime!
Presented by: House on the Rock Family Ministries
Your being here means that you believe there is still hope for your marriage. That’s all we ask … that you can still see a flicker of life … and have a willingness to fan that flame back into a meaningful marriage. You owe it to yourself, your spouse and your children to make that effort.
Acknowledging your need for an intervention (or a miracle) is the first step to transforming your relationship. You might believe you’re too far apart … too hurt and damaged … or too far gone to save your marriage. We believe that our time together can help you begin to stop the craziness so you can begin putting your relationship with God and each other back together again.
May we encourage you … before you choose to extinguish the flame of your marriage forever, to make at least one more try?
