“I wish every couple in America could experience a marriage intensive. Though most couples who attend are in crisis when they arrive, by far the majority leave hopeful and re-connected. They learn so much about themselves and their relationship, and are given tools to help them stay close and healthy throughout the rest of their marriage.”
