Whether you’ve just started dating each other or you’re considering marriage sometime soon,
Adventures in Dating
is an ideal night out for the two of you. Each relationship is different, but there are common issues most couples face. And there are proven ways to make relationships get even better
and stronger with time.
The evening starts with couples picking their own excursion*: a pontoon ride around the lake, yard games near the water, or arts/craft activities inside the clubhouse.
Then, after some couple time, you will enjoy a delicious dinner, provided by Phil Tripp, and you'll settle into a comfortable evening led by Shelby Raines. Don’t worry-- you don’t have to “share,” you just have to relax, enjoy the lake and the laughter-filled learning. Oh and save some room for s’mores at the close of the night, thanks to Lowe's of Jackson!
Against the backdrop of beautiful Clarklake, this event is packed with fun and helpful information about building a healthy relationship. Best of all, it’s a terrific date night and MMJ plans all the details!

In addition to her husband and family, she also enjoys traveling, playing games, photography, and reading a good book while lounging by the pool. Shelby is an admitted pop culture trivia buff; she can quote TV and movie lines from the 60s to present day. She loves Jimmy Fallon, prefers short walks on the beach, the occasional pina colada and getting caught in the rain. She’s not much into health food or champagne but loves slipping lyrics to old songs into everyday life. ;) And prior to marriage, she enjoyed dating a lot. In fact, she still enjoys dating, she just limits it to her husband Drew. But she knows dating and relationships can be complicated and we all want to get it right! Shelby believes putting some work and effort into your relationship from the earliest stages helps tremendously in the long run. That’s why Shelby does what she does with Marriage Matters Jackson.
