If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes events like this one to keep people energized and excited about marriage. Even in the face of stories about the rising rates of infidelity, porn addiction, domestic violence (yes Mel Gibson, I’m talking about you) and divorce, people at this event were genuinely excited about marriage.
For me, I came home after five days happy to see my husband and more excited than I have been in some time about our marriage. It’s a really good feeling and I can guarantee that I’ll be going again next year. You can find out more about attending next year’s conference on the Smart Marriages website and be sure to keep an eye on Diane Sollee, founder of SmartMarriage.com & mastermind behind this event. She’s one smart cookie with her pulse on the who’s-who and what’s-what in the world of marriage.
