"Seven Principles of Making Marriage* Work"

Welcome to the Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Workshop!

  • Have you been feeling like roommates?
  • Do you fight about the same thing over and over again?
  • Can you remember the last time you went out on a date or just had fun with one another?
  • Were you thinking about therapy but not ready for the time or financial commitment?
  • Do you have a good relationship that is going through some changes like the birth of a child or children going off to college?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this may be the training for you.
