“Getting away together can breathe new life into your marriage. Making it happen isn’t always easy but it’s always worth it.—Anonymous

Making time in your marriage to get away with your spouse is transformational.

During the inaugural 6 Pillars in Paradise Marriage Getaway, 24 couples chose to invest in themselves and build relationships with other couples who are excited to do marriage well.

Across five days, couples from all walks of life gained new tools for their marriages.

Spouses had unique opportunities to connect with each other and with other couples. There were daily group sessions, memorable activities, and stunning views.

This getaway led to amazing friendships, powerful conversations, and deeper connections between spouses.

Ultimately, a marriage getaway is a chance for you and your spouse to refresh your marriage, whether you’re a newlywed, empty nester, or anywhere in between.

There are three things to consider when you plan a marriage getaway.

First, who will you spend your time with?

There’s a big difference between going on a getaway with just the two of you and going on a getaway with other couples.

You might try to do as much as possible when you and your spouse travel alone, which can leave you exhausted by the end of your trip. But when you go on a marriage getaway with other couples, you’ll likely leave feeling rested and rejuvenated.

Being around other couples who want to experience an extraordinary marriage is life-giving.

Undoubtedly, every marriage has its struggles. Yet there’s something so encouraging about meeting other couples committed to working through their challenges as a team.

A getaway with other couples also helps you feel that you’re not alone. You can discover a community of people who understand your experiences, which gives you hope.

There is something about being away from everyday life that allows you to get deep.

An atmosphere of vulnerability and connection can develop among strangers almost immediately when they share their marriage wins and struggles.

When planning a getaway, be mindful about who you’ll spend time with. You can make the most out of a marriage getaway when you are around marriage-positive people who will pour into the two of you.

Second, when planning a marriage getaway, consider what you will be doing.

A marriage getaway is a great time to strengthen your 6 Pillars of Intimacy®.

You can deepen your emotional intimacy with poolside conversations and long walks on the beach. You can build physical intimacy through kisses, hand-holding, and more.

A marriage getaway can be a time to get your mind off finances and enjoy each other. You can boost your spiritual intimacy by praying with other couples or taking prayer walks on the beach.

As you have fun and make new memories, you strengthen your recreational intimacy. And you can explore your sexual intimacy in new and meaningful ways.

Finally, it’s important to know what you want to get out of a marriage getaway.

A getaway can impact you, your spouse, and your marriage if you let it.

Throughout this trip, couples had time to create a vision for their marriage. They identified their strengths, learned from other couples, and focused on strengthening their 6 Pillars of Intimacy®.

If you want to maximize your next marriage getaway, keep these three questions in mind. Consider who you’ll spend time with, what you’ll do, and what you want to achieve. As a result, you can transform your relationship and make new friends along the way.

Make a getaway happen, whether you join us for the 2024 Marriage Getaway or go on one of your own.

You’ll be grateful for the time away to focus on each other and your marriage.
