Today I assisted with a workshop on “Keeping Marriages Healthy”.
The workshop is part of the organization Love Gives First
The workshop is free for participants who sign up on-line. If the couple is planning for marriage the workshop gives them the 8 hours required for a $60 discount on their marriage license, which means in some areas the license is free.
“Keeping Marriages Healthy” helps individuals identify their needs and the needs of their partner and then communicate these with each other. We also spend some time talking about comforting each other in our hurts. This is valuable information for new couples and for those who have been together for a long time.
The time is spent in short presentations, individual and couple reflection and some group discussion as the individuals are comfortable. It is valuable information in a format that is comfortable for couples.
