Looking for better ways to communicate?

Asking how to keep romance alive after the wedding?

Tired of having the same fights over and over without any progress?

Wondering how to protect your connection after having a baby?

 

If any of these are true for you, this workshop is for you!

 

Unfortunately, most couples today spend a lot more time and money planning for a wedding or decorating the baby nursery than learning the skills to protect their conneciton with each other.  While wedding vows include the promise to "cherish" one another, few couples have the skills identified by researchers that keep romance alive after the honeymoon or having a baby.

 

Are We At Risk for Divorce?

 

One in every two first marriages ends in divorce today, and the risk of divorce is even higher if either spouse has been married before.  Half of divorces occur after 5-7 years of marriage, usually after the transition to parenthood.  Sadly, 70% of couples report a statistically significant drop in marital satisfaction after the birth of their first child.
