Search for a Legacy Couple
UME Legacy is a site dedicated to honoring those great marriages that have had a positive impact on the marriages around them. Some of those legacies have already received their eternal reward and others are still active in Marriage Encounter; but in either case we owe them a great debt.
This site is our THANK YOU!
Thank you for being examples that we could look up to. Thank you for being our shoulder to cry on. Thank you for loving one another, and for loving us.
Words cannot express properly the gratitude we feel toward you all, but it is a good start. THANK YOU!
Did you Know?
Many UME couples are leaving a legacy with the positive role their marriages have played in the lives of others. Of course it would be impossible to know all of those who are deserving. So, who did we miss? We need your help! Nominate a United Marriage Encounter legacy here.

The ham and eggs award is all about sacrificial giving. While many are ready to give something of their time and resources, every year there is one couple that gives of themselves over and above. For this couple we award them the ham and eggs award.

Anyone who has been on a marriage encounter weekend will tell you of the wonderful gift they received. Every couple on a weekend is in fact supported by another couple who wants to pass along the gift they received. Won't you please consider giving the gift of a weekend to another couple?
We can all think of those marriages that had a lasting impact on our own marriages, but rarely do we have a space to recognize. United Marriage Encounter has seen so many of these legendary marriages that we wanted a space to pay homage to them, to remember their contributions to marriage, and to celebrate those marriages that have had such an impact on our lives.
