A Marriage Retreat?

Barbara Sher has me thinking about a marriage retreat. The first, most obvious kind, is a couples retreat. Hold it in some quaint little out-of-the-way town with great bed and breakfasts or a country inn. Or on a warm and sunny island south of here.

But I don't do couples work. I do the-marriage-inside-your-head work. Make yourself happier and enjoy your marriage more work. Aha moment work.

So perhaps I should do a retreat for individuals. All women? All men? No. Not so good. We need to hear from each other how our hormones affect our perceptions.

And those in tenuous marriages don't really need intimate conversations with strangers who could accidentally become lovers.

So, a couples retreat. Without couples work. Would it work? What would make it work? I'm looking for ideas.
