Can you really change your marriage in five days? Marriage and family specialists Terry Hargrave and Shawn Stoever talk about the benefits of a marriage intensive--five days set aside to really go deep into your marriage and deal with those issues that have caused you to stumble as a couple. The authors explain how a husband and wife can move from the pain cycle to the peace cycle during a marriage intensive by looking at their lives, and relationship, honestly, and identifying those coping mechanisms each spouse puts in place to protect themselves.
