Pre-Marriage Retreats

Topics we cover during the retreat:

  • Communication
  • Family
  • Conflict Management
  • Financial Management
  • Friendships
  • Aging
  • Intimacy & Sex
  • Religion
  • Commitment
  • Spiritual Formation


What you can expect at the retreat:

  • You don’t have to worry about speaking in front of the group. We understand that many people have anxiety surrounding this, and we’ve designed our retreats to allow you and your fiancé to spend most of the time speaking with just each other after listening to short presentations.
  • This is a fun and relaxing environment. While you can expect to learn and spend time discussing important, and sometimes difficult topics, this is also a place for you and your fiancé to enjoy spending quality couple time together and laugh and have fun with the group. (And you can dress casually, too!)
  • All materials will be provided. Just bring yourselves!
  • Snacks and beverages will be provided for you throughout the weekend. On Saturday, there will be a break-out session over the lunch hour. You and your fiancé will have a chance to go grab lunch together, on your own.
  • The average retreat size varies from 5 to 15 couples.
  • By the time the weekend is over, you will have received 12+ hours of pre-marriage preparation. (If you are getting married in the state of MN this allows you to receive a $75 discount when you are applying for your marriage license).
  • Retreats are facilitated by certified LifeWorks trainers who have backgrounds as licensed counselors, licensed therapists, clergy, and/or relationship coaches. We look forward to sharing our knowledge, stories and experiences with you!
