Why The Traditional “Hour-a-Week” Counseling is not Effective for Marriages in Crisis

If you had a serious medical condition and needed major surgery, would your doctor do the surgery “an hour-a-week” – for 23 weeks until it was done?

Of course not – and that’s why Global Fairy Tale’s one-of-a-kind, intensive Christian Marriage Counseling Retreat is so effective. It allows for couples needing urgent care to heal their relationship over a three-day, 26-hour marriage intensive weekend.

Once this “major surgery” has been accomplished, couples are able to achieve a thorough and speedier recovery in their marriage. Trying to heal a marriage in one-hour, weekly marriage counseling sessions is ineffective because in a critical marital condition, most marital issues cannot be resolved in a one-hour session.

In one-hour sessions, often by the time the couple gets to the root of an issue-time has run out. As a result, couples often end up opening old wounds and then leaving incomplete- discouraged and feeling more hopeless than before.

Yet, over 92% of couples who attend our distinctively Marriage Counseling Retreats and Seminars leave re-committed to their marriage including even those where there’s been infidelity, and/or separation.


Our marriage intensive retreats for marriages in crisis are like “marriage ICU.” Many couples whose relationships were literally on the brink share their testimonies of how they were headed for divorce court. But at that moment of crisis, our team at Global Fairy Tale was able to help them turn their marriage around and get on the path to healing and restoration.

The same goes for our single Retreats and Intensives. Our story is much better told by those who has benefited the most, as they share from the heart. Gina
