Christian Couples Relationship Success Tip: Attend a Retreat Together

Christian Couples Relationship Success Tip:  Attend a Retreat Together

When you’re a married couple, it’s an important Relationship Success Habit for the ongoing health and vitality of your marriage relationship to invest some time regularly in taking a retreat together, just the two of you.


Even Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar visited San Francisco together alone as couple and left those 19 Kids and Counting back home in Arkansas.  No matter if you have 1 child or 19 Kids+, you need to set aside some time for just the two of you to be together without all the distractions of home life and the busyness of after school study groups, activities, hobbies, and team sports practices.

Christian, Catholic, and Jewish couples often have a lot more options for a couples retreat than non-spiritual or religious couples do.  When you are religious you have all the marvelous secular options PLUS all the couples conferences and weekend retreats offered by your faith practice.


From Couples’ Bible Studies to Parish or Congregation Retreats, summertime is full of retreat offerings which feed and nurture your couple relationship.  Whether you are considering one of Focus On the Family’s Marriage Relationship Resources to doing a Precepts Ministries Inductive Bible Study local workshop together, there is an abundance of resources for married Christian Couples to put aside a day, a weekend, or a week to invest in spiritual study and their marriage relationship together.


By putting aside that special time together, you further foster the emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy level of your married relationship.  Everything under the sun better thrives with caring and attention.  Devote some of that special caring to your spouse and to your marriage relationship.


Summertime often offers the most opportunities for such couples retreats to married people.  A number of the smaller more intimate ministries even of the very large Christian denominations and Catholic sects offer special Bible Study or Topical Studies retreats in beautiful locations over the summer.  It can be a beach city resort town or a lake side retreat center.  Poke around and see what the offerings are in your geographic region.  Book a special weekend for the two of you to get away and be together and deepen your spiritual, emotional, and physical bond.


You’ll be investing in the long lasting love of your marriage.  And who doesn’t want that?


Happy Dating and Relationships,

    Great advice for couples staying together. We sometimes forget the most important dynamic of our relationship when life gets in the way.

  • Couples retreats are a great way for people to get away and reenergize. Great ideas for dating after marriage.

    A couples retreat sounds like a good way to get away long enough to recharge your battery and enjoy some alone time together.
