This course is designed to give you a basic overview of the different aspects of marriage that come up in the first year or so. It will give you a template to help you navigate the tricky experience of binding yourself to another person while still maintaining your individual spirits. Hopefully, your marriage will be a long, evolutionary process, and the values, practices and levels of maturity that you learn and use together along your path will make all the difference in the years to come.
The tools and techniques that I will share in this course are meant to be a starting point for conversations and behaviors that will grow into the foundation of your marriage. You’ll begin with a deep dive into yourselves as individuals, so you can have some insight, tools and goals for your own personal growth. Then you’ll take that knowledge and apply it to your relationship as a couple. The most important things you can bring to these lessons is an open mind, generous heart and humble spirit. Marriage takes serious work, and it requires true courage to stand by each other for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health…you know how it goes.

There is no judgment about your experience, beliefs or values, and this is not meant to diagnose, treat or resolve any specific psychological or behavioral conditions. We are only seeking mutual respect, common language, emotional clarity, and a secure path forward for you as a couple no matter what you have been through to get here. Lifetime commitment takes a lifetime of effort and continuously rewards you with a lifetime of personal evolution. If each of you takes responsibility for the mental, emotional and physical health of not only yourselves, but your marriage as well, you will have a long and happy life together.
