They're sitting, holding hands and staring into each other's eyes.<p>Their hosts, multi-millionaire couple Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, are on a mission: to save marriages. They're trying to saturate the city with relationship counseling at workshops like this one, aiming to reach couples who wouldn't or couldn't otherwise afford to attend conventional marriage counseling.<p>Harville Hendrix is working the crowd, joking and trying to ease the tension.
