Thinking about Separation or Divorce?
Is your marriage or that of a relative or friend heading for divorce?
Do you know how to save that marriage?
Or do you feel helpless?
Retrouvaille is a lifeline of hope for troubled marriages.
Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vie) is designed to help troubled marriages regain their health. It helps both spouses uncover or re-awaken the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together. Retrouvaille began in Quebec in 1977 but is now a program offered all over the world, including the USA, Central and South America, Africa, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
The Goals of Retrouvaille
The primary goal is to provide help for couples who live in the disappointment and pain of marriage problems. The weekend provides a safe setting encouraging couples to learn communication in marriage in a respectful manner. The post-weekend phase of the Retrouvaille program is as critical to a couple experiencing marital problems as the initial weekend experience. The degree of disappointment, deterioration and despair in hurting marriages cannot be healed in one weekend. Restoration takes time. The post-weekend sessions provide support as couples discuss concepts of the importance of communication in marriage, intimacy, and many other topics. Retrouvaille is a program that is solely dedicated to providing the necessary support to help save marriages.
The Programs Leaders
A team of three couples and a priest or three couples and a Christian minister & spouse for Christian Multi-Denominational (CMD) weekends present the Retrouvaille weekend. The presenting couples have grown through serious disillusionment, pain and conflict in their own relationships. These couples offer hope as they share their personal stories of struggle, reconciliation and healing. The team couples share the deep and personal hurts they have experienced. This helps participants find the courage to express some of their own pain with their spouse in a safe and private place. In sharing their values and insights, team couples offer a message different from society's model of independence and selfishness. Hurting couples are invited to see how listening, communication, conflict management and forgiveness are healthy tools for building a stable relationship.
