What is a Retrouvaille Process?
The word Retrouvaille (pronounced re-tro-vi with a long i.) is a French word meaning rediscovery. The process offers tools needed to rediscover a loving marriage relationship. Thousands of couples headed for cold, unloving relationships or divorce have successfully overcome their marriage problems by attending the process.
The Retrouvaille process consists of a weekend experience combined with a series of 6 post-weekend sessions over 2 to 3 months. It provides the tools to help put your marriage in order again. The main emphasis of the process is on communication in marriage between husband and wife. It will give you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way.
What the Process is Not?
It is not a retreat, marriage counseling, or a sensitivity group. There are neither group dynamics nor group discussions on the weekend. It is not a time for hurting; it is a time for healing.
Who is it For?
It is for couples with marital problems including those who are considering marriage separation and those who are already separated or divorced that want marriage help.
Some couples come to Retrouvaille during the initial signs of a marriage problem. Other couples are in a state of despair and hopelessness when they attend the process. These latter couples often consider the Retrouvaille process their final option.
Many marriage counselors recommend their clients to Retrouvaille. They know that the tools of communication in marriage taught in Retrouvaille are often what couples need.
The Retrouvaille process is not designed nor intended for couples in a common law relationship, and is meant for a marriage couple of one man to one woman.
