Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened...
We bumped into a friend, who had just come back from a retreat for Christian couples. He told us all about it, and we decided that this may be our ‘FINAL CHANCE’ to ‘SAVE OUR MARRIAGE’. So, we both reluctantly made the decision to attend. It was life-changing! We gained a clearer understanding of what healthy and effective communication looked like, specifically in marriage. Through learning and using these tools, we were able to address and work through some of our most difficult issues and found a way to share our opinions and views without arguing. Our power struggles began to reduce and we started to communicate in a more positive and loving way, experiencing less and less arguments.
It was now crystal clear to us how strong, vitalised Christian couples sustain and enjoy their God-given relationships. We began to learn and see how we too could have a strong, healthy, enjoyable relationship... which was; argument-free, respectful, supportive and cemented with unconditional love.
We also learned that divorce did not have to be our story and our marriage was not doomed for failure. What we needed to do was start believing that we were brought together for a purpose... and then be willing to actually ‘USE THE TIPS AND TOOLS’ that we had been provided with at the retreat, in order to; save, heal and restore our relationship to how God intended it to be.
