First Few Years of Marriage Online Course
The perfect compliment to the book The First Few Years of Marriage, or an awesome stand-alone tune up for your marriage!
Some things you can learn before the wedding. However, most of the skills required for a long-term, healthy marriage are learned in the first few years of marriage. Many couples enter marriage thinking, We love each other and we are going to make each other happy. However, when they come down off the emotional high of the “in love” experience, they find they are not always inclined to “make each other happy.”
All of us come to marriage with expectations and visions of what it will be like. Most of us find marriage is not what we thought it would be. In an effort to be more realistic, some couples decide to live together before they get married. The idea is to do a “trial run” and see how it goes. While this may seem logical, research indicates that most of these couples end up not getting married. Those who do marry have a higher divorce rate than those who do not live together before the wedding.

The truth is, marriage cannot be simulated. It is a covenant relationship in which we proclaim privately and publicly that we will stand by each other in sickness and in health, in poverty and in wealth, and we will keep our relationship exclusive, so long as we shall live. It is a sobering commitment which brings great security for the couple who takes their vows seriously. However, working out the daily details can be tricky.
Take your time as you work through the six sessions:
Chapter 1: One Marriage, Many Drifts, Thousands of Course Corrections
Chapter 2: Happiness Is a Choice
Chapter 3: Laugh Daily and Date Weekly
Chapter 4: Slow Down
Chapter 5: Celebrate Differences
Chapter 6: Choose the Positive
Chapter 7: Fight Fear
Chapter 8: Have Great Sex
Chapter 9: Enjoy Your Baby
Chapter 10: Keep Your Promise
We recommend you pick up the book to read along
with the training courses, but the online sessions will be valuable either way!
I have never met a couple who got married intending to make each other miserable. Yet, my office and those of other counselors are filled with couples who are very unhappy. The reality is, we must learn how to create a loving, caring, supportive relationship. It does not happen simply by doing “what comes naturally.”
