Not sure where my friends/family are in their spiritual walk. Will this conference have a heavy spiritual emphasis?
This weekend will have a spiritual emphasis, but not so that people who may not have a relationship with the Lord would be offended. There will be lots of great information, Jim & Doug will bring humor as well as great information to help every person there to go away wanting to make their marriage God-honoring.
Will it be all lectures, or will there be time to interact with my spouse?
The format of the weekend will allow for interaction with your spouse and others.

Is this conference for marriages in trouble or for couples considering divorce?
Yes, there will be couples in attendance on the brink of divorce and couples who are just "in a slump." Most marriages are at least a bit high maintenance. The content is geared to improving a decent marriage and giving hope to troubled ones. People have come to the conferences ready to leave each other only to have the conference experience bring them toward healing. Whoever comes will walk away inspired, hope-filled, and given some tools to improve their marriage.
What if I attended this event last year, will it be the same?
No. Although we will have the same presenters as last year's event, there is brand new content being for this year's event. On top of that, there will be completely new programming! For those who came last year, we could encourage you to come back and build upon last year's event. As we like to say, "RYM can serve as an annual checkup for your marriage."
