Strong Bonds for Couples 

 Strong Bonds for Couples

Whether you’ve celebrated one anniversary or twenty, as an Army couple you can anticipate more excitement — and expect more challenges — than the average civilian couple. Long separations, frequent relocations, and the stress of deployment can subject Army marriages to extreme hardship.

That’s why we developed the Strong Bonds Couples program. It’s our way of saying thank you for the sacrifices you and your Family make every day as members of the world’s premier fighting force. And, because we understand the stresses of military life, we want to serve you through an off‑post, Strong Bonds weekend retreat. You and others from your unit will gain skills that fortify your marriage and enjoy a time of relaxation, recreation, fellowship, and fun.

Strong Bonds programs are offered by Army Chaplains with the full support of your Commanding Officer. You’ll gain practical, useful information based on world‑class curriculum developed from years of research. In small groups, you’ll participate in activities that renew bonds with your peers. And, as a couple, you’ll participate in communication and relationship-building skills, as well as share intimate moments.

The Strong Bonds Couples weekend retreat is designed to strengthen relationships, inspire hope and rekindle marriages — even start the journey of healing for relationships under fire.
