Retrouvaille - Helping Troubled Marriages

The ‘married singles’ lifestyle describes couples that may have lost the sense of closeness they once had as marriage partners and living more like roommates.  

Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi, with a long i) teaches couples how to survive times like these in their marriages.  This program has helped tens of thousands of couples experiencing difficulty at all levels of distress – from disillusionment to deep misery.

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ...because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
(Romans 5: 1-5)

The insight of the Canadian couple Guy and Jeannine Beland in 1977 was providential, to help couples face serious crises with a special program geared to rebuilding their relationship. (Couple leaders) lived through the same difficulties, have overcome them with God's grace and the support of Retrouvaille and in turn have felt the desire to joyfully place (their) experience at the service of others.

(Benedict XVI)
