Strong Bonds Marriage Enrichment Program
Whether you've celebrated one anniversary or twenty, as a Military couple you can anticipate more excitement -- and expect more challenges -- than the average civilian couple. Long separations and the stress of deployment can subject National Guard marriages to extreme hardship.
The Strong Bonds Couples program has been developed to say thank you for the sacrifices you and your Family make every day as members of the world's premier fighting force. We understand the stresses of military life and we want to serve you with a Strong Bonds weekend retreat. You and others from your state will gain skills that fortify your marriage and enjoy a time of relaxation, recreation, fellowship and fun.
Strong Bonds programs are offered by National Guard Chaplains with the full support of your commanding officer. You'll gain practical, useful information based on world class curriculum developed from years of research. In small groups, you'll participate in activities that renew bonds with your peers. Couples practice communication and relationship building skills and share intimate moments.
The Strong Bonds Couples weekend retreat is designed to strengthen relationships, inspire hope and rekindle marriages. It can even start the journey of healing for relationships under fire.
