Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) weekends offer an opportunity for married couples to get away and enliven the excitement, romance and passion in their relationship as well as to strengthen their marriage. A weekend experience is a time for couples to listen to presentations and share privately with each other; a time to focus on themselves.
