Tandem…A Weekend for Two - February 12-14, 2016

Give your Valentine the gift of time!

Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage!

Helping couples get it right, get along, have fun and achieve a successful marriage!

Laugh Your Way

Why a “laughter” approach? For one simple reason: to overcome the male objection to a seminar. Let’s be honest, a marriage seminar isn’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of “a fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that…familiar with the fact that women are usually much more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men.

A Tandem Couples Weekend Getaway for Two…
time to relax, talk and fall in love all over again.
