The Marriage Intensive was developed for couples whose relationship is on life support.  If you are wondering about the future of your relationship and are having trouble seeing a future with your spouse, the Marriage Intensive is the best chance for reviving your relationship.  You can feel hope.  If there is one cell within your body that believes there might be a sliver of hope, you need to give the Marriage Intensive a good try.

Our Marriage Intensives has been successful with couples who have…

  • experienced recent or a history of infidelity, adultery, pornography addictions, sexual acting out;
  • experienced financial disaster due to poor decisions of one spouse and are in deep mistrust over financial matters and the families financial future;
  • been separated for periods of weeks to over a year and who have not had sexual intimacy in over five years;
  • been through repair attempts with marriage counselors, pastors and others that have not worked in the past, and many other situations.

Divorce is costly.  Staying stuck in an unhealthy marriage can be just as costly to the financial, physical, and familial health of the couple and family.  The average cost of a contested divorce today, including custody revisions, is between $20,000 and $50,000.  A retainer during the first visit with a competent family law attorney is usually more than the cost of trying our Marriage Intensive.

Usually one spouse in the marriage has had enough.  They feel pressured to make a decision between staying stuck in a bad marriage or filing for divorce.  There is another option.  Try making your marriage healthy be investing a fraction of the cost in our marriage saving Marriage Intensive.

Did you know that 11% of couples who divorce end up remarrying each other?  That is more than 1 in 10 couples who went through the emotionally charged and damaging divorce process who could have avoided it by first trying an effective marriage saving approach like our Marriage Intensive.

Do not make a permanent decision in what may be a temporary situation.  In one study, over 80% of couples who decided to stay together and not divorce during the worst problem season of their marriages later found their relationship happier and more satisfying than before the worst season ever occurred.  That means that your best days of marriage as a couple are likely on the other side of this worst season in your relationship.

The Marriage Intensive is a way to make sure you need a divorce before proceeding.  It is a way to come to a final decision, once and for all, to either move forward toward a new future together or to finalize the end of the marriage by beginning the divorce process.


According to leading marriage counselors and researchers, evidenced based relationship and marriage counseling only works about half the time.  The traditional counseling model of an hour or two a week tends to take too long.  The pain the in the relationship that caused the call for help is not helped by adding pain frequently associated with the change process.  Couples too frequently give up before getting the change they came to counseling for in the first place.

The Marriage Intensive is a series of facilitated training processes that focus on helping you get to the root of the pain in your marriage and learn what to do with it in order to move forward together.  One couple spends the day along with Roy Wooten and either Devra or one of our other trained facilitators.  No other couples are involved.  You and your marriage are the sole focus of the day long process.

You and your spouse will be asked a series of questions that will help you tell your story and become clear on what it is that you need and want from your relationship.  You will also have a chance to hear, with new ears, your spouse’s story and what he or she wants form the relationship.  Although the Marriage Intensive has very few teaching moments, couples report that they learn a great deal about their spouse and how to move forward.  The Marriage Intensive is not complete without a clear plan about how to move forward.
