The Strong Bonds program is designed to help establish relationship goals and gain essential skills to help to make a good choice prior to picking a partner for life. A supportive mate is extremely important — so the Army and Air Force is committed to helping service members learn how to make good relationship choices by offering the Strong Bonds program. With this program, you and other Soldiers and Airmen from your unit attend training off site for a retreat weekend.  In addition to relevant teaching and skills training, Strong Bonds weekends include time for relaxation, recreation, fellowship, and fun.

The Strong Bonds Couples weekend retreat is designed to strengthen relationships, inspire hope, and rekindle marriages — even start the journey of healing for relationships under fire. In small groups, you’ll participate in activities that renew bonds with your peers. And, as a couple, you’ll practice communication and relationship building skills, as well as share intimate moments.
