Reasons I've never been on a marriage retreat:
  • getting to know you games
  • being forced to stare into my husbands eyes and say words of affirmation
  • a recurring nightmare i've had where we renew our vows in some cheesy mass ceremony
  • I'm afraid of anything resembling a campground
  • general awkwardness
Reasons I need to go on marriage retreats:
  • I'm married
  • I'm human
  • My husband's human
Reasons I had a great time this weekend on the JSO Marriage Retreat:
  • no getting to know you games
  • no staring in to my husbands eyes saying words of affirmation
  • no vow renewal ceremony
  • no camping
  • no awkwardness
(and good friends, of course)

Looks like Andy goes on the marriage retreat to start prepping his skin for Disneyworld.

I don't even know what that means. I meant he looks tan.

I'm glad you had fun and I think you've been watching way too much cheesy TV!

I know what you mean, Matt and I showed up late to avoid any possible mixers and get to know you games!

Exactly why I didn't go. Someone should've told Focus on the Family what to avoid at their simulcast event. It'll be hard for us to attend another marriage event for a while.
