Nurture the marriage that you really want.
In modern culture we have the idea that to have a successful marriage, you have to find a soulmate who is a perfect match for you, so if you run into problems in your marriage the implication is that you married the wrong person. In fact a successful marriage is a balance of making a wise choice in who you marry, combined with a willingness and an ability to foster a healthy relationship with your partner.
The Marriage Course is designed to help couples delve into their relationships and learn ways to nurture and maintain a healthy, loving, and enduring marriage. The course covers the full scope of a healthy marriage, from communication, through conflict and forgiveness, to the impact of the wider family to how we relate with our partners. Each Monday for seven weeks, we start the evening with a soup dinner. Following is a presentation on a theme, and then you and your partner can discuss between yourselves as you work through an exercise. Explore freely your relationship: discussions between you and your partner remain private to you; there is no group sharing.
Whether you are newly married or together for 45 years, whether your relationship is robust or at risk, both you and your relationship will benefit from enriching study and caring discussion.
