When your marriage isn’t working out as you hoped it would don’t pack your bags and head for the hills. On the contrary, the most successful marriages are the ones that endure hardship and fight like hell to stay together. Some couples do the traditional once a week couples counseling, while more urgent issues like infidelity and a lack of intimacy will do better by attending a highly focused marriage retreat.

Below is a list of the five best couples retreat in the U.S. Some of them are faith-based that is done in a group setting, while others are nonreligious private retreats. Whichever one you decide to choose, make certain to take advantage of the complimentary consultation to get all the details.

Through intensive therapy sessions, couples can identify the most serious issues in the relationship and then spend their time at the retreat working in a small group with a therapist to help them find solutions to those problems.

The benefit of their retreat is the amount of counseling time each couple receives. During the 4-day sessions, each couple receives an average of 32 hours of counseling. This is the equivalent of 6-9 months of traditional counseling over a matter of days.

WEEKEND TO REMEMBER

Price: $175 per person

Overview: Weekend to remember is geared towards Christian couples who don’t mind being around other couples in a group setting. It is less private than some of the retreats on this list, but it does cater to less serious marital issues. The focus of the weekend is for couples to be able to recharge their relationship and find ways to reconnect with one another.

This is more of a conference experience where couples will hear talks and presentations from marriage experts and are then given alone time to work on the concepts discussed in the lectures. This is accomplished through a variety of guided projects that each couple will work on immediately following each session.
