Welcome to the happiest, healthiest crew of marriage fanatics that

Hi! I'm Dr. Chuck Laird, executive director of Built To Last Marriages
and, with my wife Jeanette, your co-hosts for the 2005 Alaska Marriage
Cruise and Conference.
A Marriage Cruise is unlike any cruise or marriage conference you've
ever taken. It is both a dream vacation and an investment in your
marriage! Marriage Cruise offers the opportunity to experience a
Built to Last marriage seminar in the idyllic setting of a luxury
And it works! It works wonders for you and for marriage! Whether
you are newlyweds or been married for years, head over heels or
seeing a marriage counselor, Marriage Cruise is a happy infusion
of love and life -- and some practical and easy-to-learn tools --
to help your marriage thrive.
Here is the formula we've discovered for highly effective learning:
Tools + Insights + Experience + Context = Personal Conversion.
The transition from being single and independent to being an interdependent
partner in marriage is one requiring personal conversion, that is,
an entirely new and different set of skills, understandings, and
relational patterns. That conversion continues throughout your marriage
and it's never easy, particularly in the early years.
People are more receptive to change and learning when they feel
relaxed, safe, emotionally secure, and loved. When couples are laughing
and having a great time of life together, they are simply more open
Enter Marriage Cruise. Marriage Cruise provides the ideal context
for receiving new insights, learning new tools, practicing new skills,
and developing new, healthy relational patterns that stimulate growth
in oneness and lead to fabulously happy marriages.
When you are immersed in this wonder of nature -- the breathtaking,
pristine beauty of the Inland Passage, the awe-inspiring sights
and sounds of Mendenhall Glacier, the vast spaces of untamed wilderness
and majestic wildlife -- perspectives on life change. You see a
whole new world with new eyes.
With new eyes comes new openness and receptivity to reframe thought
patterns about marriage. This is the context for helping couples
begin to learn, practice, experience, and enjoy the love skills
and patterns of fabulously happy marriages. It's just a great time!
"The tools we have been given are already
making a difference. I can honestly say that making this a part
of my life was one of the best decisions I ever made." -- Giuseppe
You can't put a price tag on a happy marriage and family but if
you could, a Marriage Cruise might be the perfect down payment!
