A marriage retreat can be very beneficial for couples from all walks of life, whether you’re newly weds or you’ve been together for years. Marriage boot camp, as some like to call it offers you a peaceful environment,as well as a beautiful environment coupled with intensive workshops that will take you on the road to recovery.
Marriage retreats are simply an alternative to couples counseling, in fact, some counselors will suggest a marriage retreat if the couple is feeling like couples counseling isn’t benefiting them the way they would like.
There are many reasons couples choose a marriage retreat over couples counseling, some of which may include, less distractions from the outside world like children, work, and other daily stressors. Another reason couples may choose a couples counseling retreat could be because there is much more time to go deeper into the problems in the relationship, rather than talking about one or two topics in a one hour counseling session, you have a couple days, and some couples choose marriage boot camp because you get taught more efficient skills to cope with problems when they do arise. Marriage is something that needs to be worked on every day in order for it to be successful.
Think of your marriage as a box, when you first begin your journey the box is full. Over time you keep taking stuff out of that box. When the box becomes empty, there is nothing left in it to take out. You have to keep putting things in your marriage box, just as much as you take out of it. You have to keep investing in and working on your marriage the entire time you’re together in order for it to function properly. This is why a marriage retreat is perfect for all couples from every walk of life because it gives you those tools to put in your marriage box.

A marriage retreat tackles a wide variety of issues couples generally try to avoid, which means they sometimes don’t get talked about in couples counseling. These topics may include financial issues, sexual tension, parental issues, which are all major stressors in a relationship. These topics are often avoided in a relationship because they cause conflict, in turn, like a pressure cooker breaks that communication that is important in a relationship leading to tension in the home. During your stay at a marriage retreat you will learn the proper way to communicate and problem solve together to avoid reaching that boiling point in the future and restore that communication now.
