Has anyone ever been on one of the marriage retreats the military offers. (at least army does I know, I assume every branch does) if so what did you think? If not, would you ever consider going?

We are going on one this weekend. I'm a little nervous, mostly because we'll have to put DD in the childcare provided at least during the classes. And she's never been away from me with strangers like that before. I sure she'll be fine, she's a pretty independent baby and isnt super clingy. I'll probably take it harder than she will.
But hopefully it goes ok and we have some fun. at least if nothing else, it was completely free so it's not like we're out anything if it sucks.

I've never been, but heard great things about it. Maybe one day I will get a change to go.

I was debating to go to one this next month but the timing I don't think was right. Maybe next time.

I'm back from our retreat. I'm glad Dh convinced me to go. DD did wonderfully in childcare and DH and I got to spend some much needed couples time together. We only had about 6-7 hours all weekend of required activites. The rest was freetime and they had childcare for free until 9pm. So since DD actually enjoyed her time in childcare. Dh and I spent the day walking around downtown Seattle on only our 2nd babyfree 'date' in 9 months.
I was so worried about DD not being ok in childcare for the first time but the first day when we dropped her off she didn't even notice we had left. I was more upset than she was and I cried. Day 2 and 3 were easier for me.

I'd definitely go to another one.

Yeah I have been to 3 marriage one family retreat.. I enjoy them ours show Mark Gungor videos" Laugh your way to a better marriage. " I enjoyed out last one they has us stay in Opryland hotel in Nashville, Tn. It is beautiful. They give you childcare to do a date night. Ours are never bad it is a way of bonding. Since our guys were gone every other year it is hard to have time thereto and not be frustrated. We are always provided food first nights dinner is provided . breakfast and lunch then that next night is date night we get to go out without kids, then breakfast the next day.
