“My marriage isn’t in crisis mode. In fact, it’s pretty good.”
At The Hideaway Experience, we recognize that not every marriage is on the rocks. In fact, some marriages are doing pretty well. After several years of “practice,” husbands and wives have learned to smooth over any rough spots and set aside the disagreements that can derail marriages.
The Best Marriages Aren’t Just “Good”
But a comfortable marriage isn’t always an ideal one. God’s plan for us isn’t a drama-free relationship where conflicts are ignored rather than resolved, and where weaknesses are avoided rather than transformed. What happens in these kinds of marriages is that deep issues keep getting pushed deeper. Resentment builds. Unresolved pain can simmer. Wounds are slower to heal.
The result? A good but not great marriage. A marriage that’s just okay. But “good” marriage is less satisfying than you’d think. A decent marriage seldom inspires. Has God called you to a good marriage…or a great one?
Slowing Down in Seclusion
The three-day “Good to Great” Marriage Retreats at The Hideaway Experience are intended to take good relationships and help them blossom into something beautiful. During each retreat, one or two couples will come together in a safe, secluded setting for the purpose of slowing down, looking inward, and examining the things that might be keeping their good marriage from God’s great ideal.
How Will This Benefit Me?
You may be satisfied with your marriage, but every couple knows things can be better. What would change if you didn’t just steer clear of the push-button issues, but actually dealt with your struggles together? How refreshing would it be to build your relationship upon each other’s strengths instead of simply tiptoeing around weaknesses?
With intense sessions exploring conflict resolution, communication, and personality differences, our highly trained marital therapists help husbands and wives take their marriages to the next level. You’ll learn to boost each other over the walls that keep you from becoming everything God wants you to be —as individuals and as a couple. You’ll see your marriage begin transforming into the kind of relationship that attracts attention — that helps people see the potential of a marriage built upon the mercy and grace of God.
