Getting to the heart of God’s design
Marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a true art form. That’s why for more than 40 years, FamilyLife® has been helping couples understand God’s plan for relationships.
The Art of Marriage® weaves together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes, and more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God’s design for marriage. Filmed in a style unlike any other marriage study, over 40 contributors provide biblically-centered teaching while couples who have struggled in marriage openly and honestly share their own stories.
Testimonies of participants attest that The Art of Marriage has transformed the lives and marriages of countless couples. In fact, since The Art of Marriage released in 2011, more than 700,000 have participated in the event or series, with 97 percent saying they would recommend it to other couples.
Why choose to attend AOM?
FamilyLife weaves together expert teaching, engaging stories, real-life testimonies, and humorous vignettes in a video composition to help couples fully experience God’s design for marriage.
Will I have to engage in group discussions?
This event is not designed around any planned group discussions. However, if you have concerns about group discussion please check with the host before attending the event.
Will I be required to participate in projects with my spouse?
This event was designed so that the projects are an essential part of the event experience. The projects allow you to immediately apply what you’ve learned from the videos to your marriage. We highly recommend that you make the completion of the projects a priority during the event. In previous events couples have commented that the projects were the best part of the event.
Can singles or engaged couples attend?
ABSOLUTELY! In fact, we highly recommend it. The event will give individuals a clear understanding of what a marriage commitment truly means, and is also a great foundation for engaged couples who are soon to be married.
Divorced – Will I feel uncomfortable attending?
We understand that divorce is a reality, and we have designed this event with that reality in mind. We have tried to focus on the condition of your current marriage, rather than creating guilt for past experiences. We also recognize that even in such an environment, one might feel uncomfortable at times because of past memories and regrets that are stirred up. Our prayer is that you would come to this event excited to make your current marriage a strong, healthy, lasting one, even if it means dealing with some painful memories.
We have a great marriage. Why should we attend?
Every marriage relationship is in a constant state of movement: You are either growing closer together or further apart. Unfortunately, it seems that the natural inclination of human hearts is to drift apart over time. Every marriage needs a tune-up from time to time, no matter how well it might be running. AOM is designed to heighten even the best of marriages. It also serves as a great reminder that you are God’s gift to each other
