        Frequently Asked Questions:

        Q: Who is this cruise for?

        A: This cruise is perfect for married couples who are looking to get away from the rush of home and work to focus on and enjoy each other and their marriage. While this cruise is perfect for those who are celebrating a wedding or anniversary it’s also great for couples who need help or just want to add more tools to what they already have.

        Q: Will there be any private time?

        A: This cruise will be the perfect mix of both group and and private time. This is the cruise that you planned. We’ve based how much training there should be by a survey we published earlier this year. Over 1300 couples filled out the survey in just two weeks and we built the cruise and agenda around those answers. While we do encourage you to link up with other couples who you can learn from, we also want you to spend intimate moments together looking out into the sea or on the beaches of Roatan & Cozumel.

        What People Are Saying About Us...

        BWMK offers a blueprint for 21st century black family in a funny, inspiring, relatable, and easy-to-understand way.Kara Stevens,

        BMWK  has been a consistent source of wisdom and direction for me as a new husband.Delano Squires,

        BMWK has been a blessing to me, my wife, and my marriage. Being young in our marriage it provides us with unique perspectives and great insight about issues faced in marriage. There is nothing like personal stories that you can relate to. Ronnie and Lamar are true professionals and they provide their audience with best experiences one could ask for. Their mission is truly a blessing to others.Troy Spry,

        The overall mantra of BMWK has been inspirational to me and my husband. We were introduced to the work of Ronnie and Lamar Tyler and continued to go back for more. After being married for 26 years we have seen a lot of people proclaim to have the best interest of marriage at heart. Ronnie and Lamar are GENUINE in this claim and prove it over and over again.Deborah Mills,

        Before I found BMWK, I thought I had it ALL together as it relates to my marriage. But reading the articles daily and watching the films have really helped me take a closer look at myself. It has helped to keep me in check and even helped me to address certain issues that I wasn’t sure of how to approach. But most importantly, it’s been so inspiring to know that there really is no obstacle too great to overcome in my marriage.Christine St. Vil,

        BMWK has completely changed my perception of marriage. Having grown up around so many unsuccessful marriages, the idea of a happy marriage was foreign to me. Being able to see so many couples on a regular basis who are so committed to one another and dedicated to making it work has really opened my eyes to joy and possibilities that come with this marriage journey.Aja Jackson,

        What You Can Expect...

        On the 2014 BMWK Marriage Cruise you can expect both a good time and the opportunity to experience growth in your marriage as you form a closer connection with your spouse. We believe that God’s purpose for our lives is to encourage marriages just like yours. See you on the cruise!
