Marriage for a New World
Date:4/15/2008

PORTLAND, Ore., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Couples looking for a relevant approach to living happily in the 21st century will find some no-nonsense ideas when The Marriage Experience arrives in Portland. On May 3rd, Engaging Discussions brings this groundbreaking event to the Oregon Convention Center on its nationwide mission to deliver the kind of desperately needed marriage education that promotes candid dialogue about the real issues that couples face today in the early stages of their relationships.

"This isn't your mother's marriage education class. This is a hip event that speaks directly to couples in their 20's and 30's. We want to empower the next generation of married couples to have the knowledge, skills and desire to stay together," explains Kelley Baker, founder and CEO of Engaging Discussions, the producer of the event, "and that means talking about subjects close to young-marrieds' hearts: sex, money and whether other couples are struggling with the same issues that they are."

Half of the 4.3 million newlyweds in the U.S. celebrating their first anniversary this year are already having doubts about whether their marriage will last. Nearly 9 out of 10 married adults think some sort of marriage preparation is invaluable for young couples; yet only 1 couple in 5 seriously pursues it before (or after) the wedding, often until it's too late. The Marriage Experience aims to remedy this. It helps couples learn how to be married, tackling the inevitable challenges that arise in the first years of marriage; fighting back the divorce rate one couple at a time.

Engaging Discussions is the engine behind the jam-packed event. Kelley and Kenric Baker, the company's founders, have harnessed the most effective approaches they could find from a cutting-edge group of highly acclaimed relationship experts. Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, best-selling authors of the award-winning Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts, anchor the event, which is enriched with the relationship savvy of nationally recognized marriage crisis gurus, Dave and Mary Gothi. The event culminates in a hilarious dueling piano and comedy show with Michael and Amy, who draw and orchestrate their material from lessons they've learned in their own marriage.
