The Your marriage and the marriages around you are colored by personalities, passions, and experience. Making marriage work is a divinely inspired art form.
For more than three decades, FamilyLife® has been helping couples understand God’s plan for relationships. Now, in this video-guided event, The Art of Marriage, we weave together expert teaching, engaging stories, man-on-the street interviews, humorous vignettes, and much more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God’s design.
The Art of Marriage® consists of six video sessions that cover the following topics:
Session 1: Love Happens (Purpose of Marriage)
Session 2: Love Fades (Drift to Isolation)
Session 3: Love Dances (Roles)
Session 4: Love Interrupted (Communication)
Session 5: Love Sizzles (Romance and Sex)
Session 6: Love Always (Legacy)
Q: Will I have to engage in group discussion?
A: FamilyLife has not designed the Art of Marriage event with any planned group discussions.
Q: What is the length of the event? Friday evening from 7-9:30 pm and Saturday from 9 am - 4 pm.
Q: Can we bring children?
A: In order to keep the event free from distractions and as a courtesy to other participants, children are not invited to the event.
Q: I have been divorced. Will I feel uncomfortable at this event?
A: Familylife understands that divorce is a reality, and has designed this event with that reality in mind. The Art of Marriage is focused on the condition of your current marriage, rather than creating guilt for mistakes made in the past. We also recognize that even in such an environment, one might feel uncomfortable at times because of past memories and regrets that are stirred up. Our prayer is that you would come to this event excited to make you current marriage a strong, healthy, lasting one, even if it means dealing with some painful memories.
Q: We have a great marriage. Why should we attend the event?
A: Every marriage relationship is in a constant state of movement: You are either growing closer together or further part. Unfortunately, it seems that the natural inclination of human hearts is to drift apart over time. Every marriage needs a tune-up from time to time, no matter how well it might be running. This event is designed to heighten even the best of marriages. It also serves as a great reminder that you are God’s gift to each other.
