It was a wonderful weekend. Thanks for the memories and the tool for a successful, happy marriage! – Husband and Wife

Doctor Markman was a charismatic and engaging speaker, liked the stories.

I thought it was excellent and laid out the LYR program very clearly.

Great experience, thank you.

Thank you for meeting our needs so beautifully.

I love the small tables for each couple-nice touch.

Wish there was an LYR part 2 *hint hint*

Good material, a great location/facility knowledgeable presentation.

Excellent, well rounded event.

The whole concept for the retreat-mixing skills management with fun in a beautiful and comfortable setting (the gorgeous Saint Julian-was an extremely positive experience)

Great delivery of the subject matter, good humor and fun, making fun a priority was great!

Thanks so much, we enjoyed it.

Howard, your style is very interactive and animated (very positive). Marcie and Jonah were very supportive and you all worked well as a team. –Husband

Very well done- lots of great tools for improving communication.

Benefits will last forever; it was a lot of fun! Even though we know each other really well, I think we know each other even better now. –Husband and Wife.
