The DIY Marriage Retreat in a Box is for couples who want to invest time and energy in their relationship- who want to rekindle or grow the emotional intimacy that is a hallmark of abiding love. Work, logistics and obligations get in the way of the time we know we need to invest in keeping our marriages strong and resilient. The DIY Marriage Retreat in a Box helps couples make the time and space needed to help their relationship grow.
You can plan a weekend fully committed to this retreat, a day or even hours at a time across weeks. The more time you can purposefully set aside, the better. We all know how easily unscheduled time gets eaten up by other people’s needs, and the general stuff of life.
You can complete all or parts of this retreat- some couples do one part every month as an ongoing process, others complete the entire thing one weekend a year and some do as much as they can whenever they can steal away an evening or few hours on a weekend.
Many couples even pick up parts of the DIY Marriage Retreat when they need a bit of remediation in a particular area- a reminder of what helped them communicate better, or brought them to a stronger place together in one of the areas.
If your relationship is in rough shape, go get help from a licensed practitioner who can give you the depth of help and support you need. Using the DIY Marriage Retreat to save your marriage is even less effective than having a baby to save your marriage would be, and we all know that doesn’t work. At all. When you get the help you need to make your relationship work, you take a chance on making your relationship wonderful, and you both deserve that.
