Who knows when we can have a live event again. Create your own hot marriage flames with a DIY Commitment Weekend!

How do you do Commitment Weekend, on your own?

1.  We send you a Date Box package and details to plan a fun 24-48 hours. 

2. You listen to a few pre-recorded Video Sessions (powerful, but not too many!) with Guest Experts and the Fire Community.

3. Have fun with our guided activities, including an all new version of our Hot for Marriage "At Home" edition.

We were unable to have an in person Commitment Weekend this year.  In July we had an amazing LIVE Online Experience that was super successful.

We realized any fire couple can recreate this Commitment Weekend on their own with our Video Sessions and a special Date Box package!

You can do this at home or safely from a hotel room or Air BnB of your choice if an options. (*but please.... find a sitter for the kids because this is about the two of you and a HOT steamy re-connection!)

How do you do Commitment Weekend on your own exactly?

It is literally Commitment Weekend that you get to experience together as a couple with our programs delivered to your door *and* watched online.  This includes pre-recorded Videos, Sessions and Activities...for you to do together, just like at Commitment Weekend.

Our goal is still for you and your significant other to connect, learn and grow with live online speakers, sessions and meaningful, playful and intimate private activities we designed to do at home (or an Air Bnb/Hotel if you can travel safely) for just the two of you.

ALL of the re-connection spark for your fire marriage, but from the privacy of your home (yes.... let your mind wander "there" ;) )

Why should firefighters and their spouses create their own Commitment Weekend?

Firefighters train hard, and train often.  Preparing for any situation, danger or possibility that they may face in the line of duty.

So why not train just as hard for your marriage? Regardless of if you're the firefighter, or the fire spouse, training for your marriage is your duty. Are you being intentional with training with your life partner?

Being committed isn't enough, you have to be ALL IN.

Marriage is a lifelong commitment to learning, growing and nurturing your relationship with your significant other.  Great marriages don't just happen, they take two people who are intentional with their time, efforts and words. Consider our Commitment Weekend DIY Date Box a continuing education/training for your marriage.  

Firefighters often train for situations that may never happen, but could.  Being prepared is a critical part of the fire life. With Commitment Weekend {Do It Yourself} we not only provide you with great material to improve your relationship NOW, but we also give you tools and resources to stow away in your marriage toolbox... in case you ever need them.

Suggested Weekend Time Line

We encourage you to block out your schedule to spend this weekend together as a couple.  (No kids either!)  There will be activities you can do on your own as well as times to get online and listen to a live speaker or participate in an event.

We do not want you to be in front of a computer all weekend.  (Or days of your choice, it does not have to be a weekend... just 48 hours of uninterrupted couples time!) 

We DO want you to connect with each other, be inspired by a few live sessions and the interactive exercises we are sending your way.

(And there will be a small list of things we suggest you gather to make your DIY Commitment Weekend an amazing experience)

Oh..... and if you can do it away somewhere together.... awesome!  If not, transform your home into a no-work-zone and romantic gathering place for 48 hours.


Pre-Event "Activities"

You'll have access to your event materials almost immediately.  The anticipation is almost as fun as the event itself.  (Anyone try the 7 days of sex challenge?? Ok, well there's more too.)  While you're waiting to DIY your perfect Commitment Weekend dates you should...

  • Print/view your DIY materials online.
  • Clear your schedule for the event.
  • Secure a sitter if you have children if at all possible.
  • Get any chores and errands done before your event.
  • Make any reservations (if you're going away, ordering in or dining out).
  • Purchase any special items you may want to enhance your CWO experience (We will include a list. We will intentionally try to make you blush a little. All that alone time.....you know!)

Do we have to be available for an entire weekend?

Nope (but we do recommend it).  If you need to work around a shift day, stretch it out over a week, it’s possible.  Do what you have to do to make it work for you. The best way is to block out 48 hours of couple's time if possible.

Do I need a hot date night clothes?
Definitely.  Even if you’re staying at home we encourage sexy date night clothes and a hot dress!  Enticing each other should not have limitations just because you are home together.  Spice it up!
What's the agenda? How does this flow?

As you need it to.  We give you a suggested order of events, but this is DIY... make it work the best way you can but we do ask that you both give it your all!

All video sessions are pre-recorded.  We'll give you an outline of our suggested Agenda Timeline, but you may have obstacles to work around.  Do it how you can, but we highly suggest that you take an intentional 48 hours to spend together.

Should we get a sitter?

Yes.  If at all possible, taking time for just the two of you is highly recommended. Uninterrupted, non-parenting, distraction free couples time is the goal here!  And…. we will talk about s-e-x which will not be appropriate for little ears.

If you cannot get childcare, you can still make this event work to the best of your ability.

How does this really work?  Are we just watching zoom meetings the whole time?

HECK NO!  Even at our in person Commitment Weekends we schedule no more than 4 - 6 hours of speaker time over a 3 day period.   This is about connecting together as a couple and meeting other fire couples you can relate to.   All of this happens by doing various fun date / fire themed activities together.  Commitment Weekend Online is similar.

You receive a date box package of swag and activities.  We will share with you all of our Video sessions with speakers, guiding you through fun activities like couples workouts, couple's massage, date night, recommitment ceremonies and cooking lessons, oh, and our infamous H.O.T. for Marriage drills.  There will also be free space for you to do what you like.  Pick an activity from our box or choose your own.

How do these “interactive activities” like date night cooking, couples workout, massage actually work?

You will receive more detailed prep instructions for your entire "weekend" beforehand in a printable checklist!  You'll also have password access to your DIY Commitment Weekend Home Page where you can find out all the details for each part of your weekend!

Prep for your activity and follow along with your video session - DIY!

How does HOT for marriage work?  Do I need all that equipment? 

H.O.T. for Marriage is perhaps the most fun activity of all of Commitment Weekend when each firefighter helps his spouse get into fire gear and run a fire themed obstacle / skills course designed by our team.   Clearly you all won’t have drywall breaching or forcible entry simulators at home (bonus points if you make this happen, we saw this in our LIVE event July 24-26th!).


However, even just trying on some gear and trying a couple tools is going to be impactful as a couple.
Creativity is not limited here.  We will have a session to coach you through ideas for making your own at home H.O.T. (and yes if you want to build a drywall breach simulator, or forcible entry your own back door….. go for it!)   Just be thinking what kinds of things you could (legally) borrow from your department for the weekend.  Air Pack, hose pack, halligan tool, etc.  And be thinking what’s around.

And be prepared to photo and video this session - we love seeing fire wives in action!

Can we just do the HOT for Marriage Session at our firehouse?
With the right permission, yes.  Could be super fun.  But guys….. just remember this is about connecting as a couple and not getting all eaten up by your firefighting training.  (We LOVE that you love to train but it might be a sore spot with your spouse m’kay?  Cause it kinda takes time.  She may be nervous about trying drills.  The goal is for you to CONNECT.  To listen to each other’s needs, get a little out of both of your comfort zones and to NOT end up in a tiff over something silly right?)
Can we do this as a group of couples with other Fire Friends?
Yes!  Great idea if you can do so safely  (in socially distanced safe small groups).   However each couple needs to individually order their own DIY Commitment Weekend Date Box.  If you do participate as a group, let us know by emailing us at contact@firefighterwife.com, we would love to see photos and videos of your experience!
What technology do we need?

A bigger device is better than a phone.  A laptop, iPad or even connect to your TV and get comfy on the couch watching.    Oh…. and Facebook if you're on social.  We know not everyone is on it but it is a great way to interact in a group and connect with other people who have experienced, or are experiencing their own Commitment Weekend Online!

You will also have a login for your Commitment Weekend content!  Those details will be sent to you at registration.  You can share a login to access if needed.

What is 24/7 Commitment and why is there a fee to attend any format of Commitment Weekend?

24-7 Commitment is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit with the mission to honor, support and encourage fire service marriages and families. You can learn more at 247Commitment.org.  The majority of our funding comes from individual donors.   Sigh... We wish we had a big helpful generous sponsor to let us provide this all to you for free but alas.... not yet - if you know one, send them our way!).

So we try to keep costs as low as possible without sacrificing quality for our attendees.   And..... this is the LOWEST PRICED CW EVER since we don't have crazy expensive venue fees.   We are hoping this really entices a lot of couples to jump in and try it.

What is the refund policy?

We are unable to offer refunds.  You'll have immediate access to all event materials, pre-recorded sessions and downloads.  You can create your "weekend" at any time.  You can use this content to create multiple couple's "weekends" if you choose to replay your content multiple times.

If you have any issues after purchase, please email us for help at Contact@FirefighterWife.com and we'll be glad to help you get sorted out.

How do I contact someone?
