Why You Need a Marriage Retreat

Many couples won’t consider marriage counseling, seminars or retreats unless their relationship is on the rocks. When things are “okay,” it is easy to assume they will always be that way. The truth is, if you are not actively pursuing your partner and cultivating your relationship, eventually it will start to break down. Intentionality is required if you want your marriage to thrive instead of just survive.


Here at The Inn, healthy marriages are a major focus of our ministry. Unfortunately, many couples come to us as a last resort. They reach the point of desperation before they are finally willing to get help. They arrive in a state of brokenness, and we try to help them pick up the pieces.


It doesn’t have to be this way!


You can start taking steps today to prioritize your marriage and secure a strong future with your spouse. All too often, the responsibilities of parenting, jobs and ministry creep in and overshadow the marriage covenant. Sometimes it feels like there just are not enough hours in the day to make quality time for your partner. That’s why marriage retreats are so effective—they provide an opportunity to step away from the day-to-day and remind yourselves why you got married in the first place.

Marriage Retreat Benefits

1. Time Together

Retreats eliminate distractions so you and your spouse can truly concentrate on each other. There are no kids, no deadlines and no to-do lists. It’s just the two of you in an intimate environment where you can relax and reconnect.

2. Time With God

Sometimes the busyness of life can keep couples from pursuing the Lord together, even if they have healthy spiritual lives individually. A marriage retreat is the perfect setting for husbands and wives to dig into God’s Word together, worship together and seek the Lord in prayer together.

3. Seasoned Advice

Our staff at The Inn have counseled hundreds of couples at all stages of marriage, from newlyweds to empty-nesters. When you plan a marriage retreat, you will have access to team members who can help you work through rough patches or make your solid relationship even stronger.


Whether you come for a weekend or an extended stay, the time alone with your spouse will have a lasting impact on your marriage. Contact us today to schedule your private retreat!
