Many married couples who are experiencing feelings of disarray and disassociation with one another will often confront each other with a question that has been looming over the relationship ever since the problems began. “Where do we go from here?”
The option of a marriage retreat is always available for these struggling couples as the very answer to that question. Marriage retreats have numerous benefits and boast successful results for couples who have undergone and survived the retreat experience.
The welcoming, non-judgmental, and most importantly, private experience that happens at a marriage retreat represents a great caveat for its success in saving many married couples.
Private 1-on1 marriage retreat eliminates the stresses or unwarranted desires of participating in group marriage counseling, and couples work one on one with a professionally and educationally accomplished couples therapist.
If you are reading this article right now and you happen to identify as someone who is in a troubled marriage, unsure as to the aforementioned question, “Where do we go from here?”, then you may have found the right page. Please keep reading, as we will discuss why a marriage retreat may be the answer for you.
The pain of a troubled marriage can be the greatest pain one can ever feel. Once upon a time, you had someone in your life who meant everything to you; someone who looked forward to talking to at the beginning of the day; someone who you loved to spend time with no matter what else was going on in the world.
Now, that person is at odds with you over problems that have escalated through time, causing emotional distress and depression in the relationship. This is a pain that can be resolved through a marriage retreat.
There is light at the end of the tunnel, you just need to be willing to go towards that light. The idea of getting away for a weekend to devote entirely on your relationship is a welcoming one, and it’s one that professionally licensed marriage retreat specialists thrive on as their life’s work.
Solving your relationship problems takes a lot of work. So, if you think that deciding on a marriage retreat is the immediate fix to your problems, think again. Sure, agreeing to embark on a marriage retreat is a terrific first step in saving your marriage, but only then can the real work begin.
You aren’t going to solve all of your problems with your spouse through an improved sense of communication. Instead, therapists will conduct several assessments on you and your spouse.
These assessments may be presented through conversation, a series of questions, or even exercises in understanding.
Ultimately, one of the aims of a marriage retreat is to get both partners to reach a level of understanding with one another, and a level of understanding as individual members of that couple. To know where your spouse is coming from, and to have your spouse know where you’re coming from, as it were, is when the progress really starts to germinate.
The science-based approach is recommended for the majority of struggling married couples when it comes to therapy. Starting with a weekend retreat, you and your spouse can begin your journey together, which is a journey that may follow you for several months following the initial retreat. During the initial weekend retreat, you may have the following experiences.
After checking into your room and making appropriate dinner reservations, as an interest to preserve the dating aspect of your relationship, you and your spouse should begin to either discuss or individually write down your goals for therapy that you will present on the following morning when you really begin to dive into the retreat.
The next morning you and your spouse will formally meet with your therapist and really begin to unravel the issues that you have with each other, and also the issues that you have within yourself.
The day continues with therapy driven work where your therapist will present the areas that he or she would suggest you and your spouse to focus on during the duration of the couples retreat.
The therapist will make this determination based on the assessment exercises that have been performed during the sessions that have happened during the day. At this point in time, the therapist will offer feedback and resolution exercises.
During this period of time, you will now know the strengths of your relationship, the dynamics that have been contributors to the problems in your relationship, the goals and objectives for the next day and beyond, and how all of these suggestions and adjustments relate to you as an individual.
The retreat concludes with final thoughts and reflections on the experience, what you have learned about each other, what you have learned about yourself, and what you will be doing together to ensure a healthy relationship. As per suggestion and implication, the marriage therapy is not over after the weekend retreat.
You may expect your therapist to follow up with you on a frequent basis for the next few months. The lines of communication will remain open as you and your spouse grow stronger and create a better future to trump over your troubled past.
Throughout this article, we want you to keep one theme in mind. The only way your marriage is going to succeed is if you want it to succeed.
To that end, the only way a marriage retreat is going to succeed is if you and your spouse are willing and committed to wanting it to succeed. Prior to embarking on a journey as unique as a marriage retreat, you and your spouse will both need to mutually express the willingness to change and reach a common goal of a stronger union.
As soon as you both reach that agreement, then it is time for the real work to begin. If you have stuck through this entire article and feel as though you may need to answer that aforementioned question, “Where do we go from here?”, then look no further. Seek out your marriage retreat, and get your marriage back on track.
