Review for CORNERSTONE MARRIAGE & FAMILY MINISTRIES, Cypress, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I attended the Weekend Marriage Retreat in the end of January '13. It was very good. The people in charge were very nice, seemingly sincere and helpful.
The weekend was planned out very well and the rest is up to the couple attending.The only sort of awkward moment is the first night when each couple is asked to greet 2 other couples,that's it!!! No embarrassing "confession group sessions" or anything like that. Basically, Roy and Sue are the Teachers and you and your spouse are the students. Listen, learn and use what they teach, that simple. Personally,I think the tools that Roy and Sue demonstrate and the basis of what they teach during the weekend are wonderful.However, AT THE END IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO STICK TOGETHER; I MUST say that BOTH PEOPLE NEED TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE FOR THIS TO WORK LONG TERM. I believe this program can be EXACTLY what a dying Marriage needs.
Sadly, it only lasted for a few weeks in my husbands case. But while he was trying AND using the things/tools we learned, that weekend could have lasted us for a lifetime.
Overall, I would say that its totally worth it,if you and your spouse are BOTH willing to use what you learned. I totally recommend it.

*Additionally, for those who wonder; we stayed at the Wyndham Dallas Retreat, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean. The place is decently nice without distraction. Which, in my opinion is perfect since you are there to work on serious life issues. There is a Corner Bakery across the street that I highly recommend you visit first and stock up on sandwiches, etc. because the room service is pricey(as like all RS) and not very tasty. There are a couple of other restaurants in walking distance but they close before the evening lets out at 10pm or so. The convenience store nearby is ok but limited as most of them are.
