intimate marriage weekends

If 95% of couples who get married, sincerely believe they will stay married for life, why are over Half of marriages today ending in divorce? The Answer…a lack of Intimacy. Intimacy is the physical and emotional glue that holds a marriage together. It’s what changes a good marriage into a Great Marriage. At our Intimate Marriage Weekends, we help couples Identify & Disrupt the Negative Communication Patterns in their Relationship that prevent them from having the Passionate and Meaningful Marriage God Intended.  We cover topics such as: why marriage is hard, our natural pain cycle, creating a shared vision, media influence, communication danger signs, forgiveness, and much more.  Couples also receive plenty of free time to relax and enjoy shared-activities such as: hiking, fly fishing, star gazing, hot tubbing, taking a romantic stroll along the river, or just watching a sunset in the scenic Nile Valley.  While the class instruction is done in a group setting, since we believe we can learn from one another’s experiences, no individual will ever be singled out or put on the spot.  All interaction is strictly voluntary, and all instructional activities and exercises will be conducted solely with your partner.  We sincerely believe this weekend experience will bless and enrich your marriage, regardless of what state or stage it is in.  Space is limited, so reserve your spot today.
