A. The information covered in the presentations is exactly the same regardless of which experience you choose to attend. The difference is in the timing and format. A 3RE is shared over seven or more sessions that last two to three hours each. Couples attending a 3RE will have homework between sessions.
A Marriage Encounter Weekend is a 44-hour retreat, where couples stay at a hotel or attend virtually using Zoom or another online platform and experience all the presentations between Friday night and Sunday afternoon.
The 3RE experience is offered both face-to-face and virtually as a DVD presentation. One presenting couple will facilitate the seven to eight sessions, playing a DVD that features three couples (one a clergy couple). These couples share stories from their own marriage journeys and provide time-tested communication advice on the video. The facilitating couple will answer questions online or in the room.
Both experiences can have an amazing impact on your marriage. You need to choose the right format for you.
