Many people are under the false assumption that marriage programs are only for those in trouble. Every marriage needs maintenance.
It is difficult to keep anything in good working order without upkeep. Somehow, we think our marriage will maintain itself.
Cars get tuneups and people get physical checkups. A marriage needs an annual tuneup also.
If a couple is going to make marriage a priority, that takes time and energy. A weekly date is vital to keeping love alive and thriving. Our relationship needs nurturing. We feed and water plants, but somehow we expect a marriage relationship to grow without any special care.
Every married person needs to ask the question, "What have I done for my marriage today?"
It is a challenge to become the best spouse you can be. Taking time every year to learn new things about your relationship is essential to a healthy marriage.
Many times women tell me that they would love to attend a marriage workshop but cannot get their husband to attend. Each person in the marriage must be willing to give 100 percent to the relationship. Attending a marriage workshop together will help each partner to become a better spouse. A good marriage will get even better.
Perhaps you could gather several other couples and sign up together for a marriage workshop. This could be a fun date for all the couples. Spending time with your spouse and discovering new things will deepen your good relationship.
Marriage enrichment is just that – it will make your marriage richer. Having fun together and attending events helps to build your sense of togetherness.
Most weddings do not come with a marriage manual. It is essential to keep love alive and maintain our marriage. By all means sign up today for a marriage enrichment workshop. You will be glad that you did.
