Marriage Encounter

Marriage Encounter was started by couples and a priest, Father Gabriel Calvo, in the 1950s in Barcelona, Spain. It came to the United States in 1968 through the Christian Family Movement.

Our group in North Texas was started in 1972 by a couple and a local priest, Fr. Bob Wilson, looking for a program to enrich married couples. National Marriage Encounter was selected for its history of success, sound psychology and interfaith attitude. National Marriage Encounter of North Texas (NMENT) has been in continuous operation in the DFW Metroplex since 1972.

More than 3,000 couples have made a Marriage Encounter weekend in North Texas. The organization is nationally and internationally acclaimed for over 40 years.

NMENT is a member of Healthy Marriage Healthy Families Coalition of Tarrant County.
