In these harried times of busy schedules and economic pressures, romance can be ignored if not forgotten entirely.
But Warm Beach Camp in Stanwood offers a chance for couples to reconnect.
The camp is hosting "Marriage Encounter," a weekend experience for couples of all ages.
In a press release, the Rev. Mark Miller, team leader, called Marriage Encounter "an environment where couples can address the problem areas of their marriages in a healthy way."
Couples who attend Marriage Encounter will have a chance to hear from a panel of husbands and wives from different walks of life who will share stories about their own marriages.
These couples will offer tips gleaned from their own experiences that might help those struggling in their relationships improve their problem-solving and communication skills.
Couples who attend Marriage Encounter can meet others who are going through similar experiences and who are working through some of the same issues, according to the press release.
These Marriage Encounter weekend sessions are for husbands and wives only. Couples need to make other arrangements for children and pets. Couples might also consider leaving cell phones at home as well.
Marriage Encounter weekends are Jan. 20 to 22, March 23 to 25 and Oct. 26 to 28 at Warm Beach Camp, 20800 Marine Drive, Stanwood. Arrive at 7 p.m. Fridays at Olympic View Lodge and depart at 5 p.m. Sundays. The cost of a Marriage Encounter weekend is $389 per couple.
