When Your Spouse Doesn’t Want A Marriage Retreat

Marriage Retreats

What’s in a Marriage Retreat?

When you start thinking about getting in a big room with a bunch of people and sharing what’s going on in your marriage that kind of stuff makes me a little uneasy. What are they going to ask us to do? Will they put us on the spot? We definitely don’t want to air our dirty laundry in front of a group of complete strangers. We don’t want to be embarrassed.

Like this spouse, you may be questioning the whole idea of attending a retreat.

At WinShape Marriage, we hear concerns like these often — and they’re completely understandable.

Marriage Retreats at WinShape are designed to be fun, equipping and impactful.

Here’s what you can expect at a WinShape Marriage Retreat:

  • A chance to have a fun adventure, away from your ordinary, everyday routine
  • Time to connect with your spouse, focus on one another without distraction and talk about things together
  • Learn tools to enhance your marriage
  • A quiet retreat to hear from God, as He leads you in your marriage

What you will not experience at a Marriage Retreat is:

  • Marriage counseling
  • Requests to share personal information or experiences with the group

Every aspect of each WinShape Marriage retreat is intentionally designed for couples to experience grace-based hospitality, elements of worship, Bible-based teaching and experiential learning all in an incredible setting.

If you and your spouse are considering a marriage retreat but are a little nervous to give it a try, start out with something fun like Romantic Adventure.

Marriage retreats at WinShape immerse you in intentionally curated environments that suit you, your spouse and the season of marriage you find yourselves in.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
