When was the last time you and your spouse took the time to get away just the two of you? For some, the answer might be “our honeymoon!”
Most couples do not understand the importance of getting away together.  We recommend couples make a plan to get away and get ahead at least two times a year.
Get away once a year to “play” together, go do something fun together.  Getting away for some fun will help keep the spark in your marriage and keep the romance alive. Also, get away once a year to “work” on your marriage together. Attending a marriage seminar or workshop will give you the tools you need to make your marriage strong.  And if you pick the right one it’ll be fun to boot!
Over the years we’ve heard all the excuses: it’s too expensive, what do we do with the kids, we like to do different things. These excuses are obstacles easily overcome when you understand the enormous benefits that getting away and getting ahead bring to your relationship.



When I, Jay, was a young boy my father would sit on the floor outside my bedroom door after Sunday Lunch and make me close my eyes until I fell asleep.  I was a hyper kid and I did NOT like to rest. My dad, however, knew the rest of the family needed a break from ME!
You may plan an action-packed fun filled week away, but you’re still getting a “rest” from life and the routine back home.  We’ve been on many vacations where we said near the end of the week… can’t wait to get back home and SLEEP!

Sometimes you can get away just for the day. Last week, we were running an errand and planned to be back home around lunchtime. Instead, we decided to make a day of it and ended up having lunch out and doing some shopping for nothing in particular! It was a really great day! Nothing planned just spontaneous.

Rejuvenation actually means to make YOUNG again, renewing your love. We all remember how we felt when we were young and in love.  Science tells us that those feelings fade after about 18 months unless we purposefully act to keep the spark alive.
Getting away if even for a day to someplace romantic will spark in you and your spouse a new and rejuvenated love for each other and will make your marriage thrive.

Remembering why you fell in love in the first place. Whatever stage of life you are in:
• Newlyweds that are just starting out.
• Young parents with kids clamoring for every minute.
• Parents of pre-teens and teens that are carting kids in a million different directions.
• Empty-nesters that are now stuck with only each other.

Life has a way of disconnecting us as a married couple. Kids, jobs, and responsibilities can pull us in different directions.
We need to find time; a day, an evening, a weekend, or an entire week – to reconnect with our spouse. Disconnect from the daily obligations and reconnect with each other!

So get out your calendar and register for Celebrate Your Marriage at Grand Hotel in May or October.
