Why Everyone Needs Marriage Education
Marriage and Relationship Education is an investment in your Self. You realize that real success includes fulfillment in your life and relationships. Mastering relationship skills positively impacts all areas of your life – personal, professional, and spiritual. Marriage and relationship education are built upon the following assumptions:
Relationships are Highly Valuable
The success and quality of life is directly connected to the quality of your personal relationships.
You are Committed to Your Success and Are Willing to Learn
You are serious and intentional about having a fulfilling life partnership, creating a loving family, and being engaged in your community.
By knowing and learning what works – both old fashioned, timeless principles, and the latest in marriage and relationship research – you can reach your goals farther and faster than by trial-and-error experience.
You do not want to settle for less or risk preventable failure. People are not born knowing the relationships skills they will need to create loving and lasting marriages and raising emotionally intelligent and respectful children. You are willing to give yourself the gift of the support needed to be successful.
You Are Open to Mentoring and Support
A Marriage and Family Educator can help you through the process of self-discovery and making successful relationship choices. Reading a book is not a substitute nor effective method of learning new skills. Additionally, a knowledgeable mentor can support you to be authentic with yourself, give you “reality checks,” and serve as a sounding board.
Your life will be filled with opportunities and conflicting choices, and you recognize the importance of creating and maintaining balance in your relationships and your needs.
You Want to Live Authentically and Be Response-able
Today's world is filled with challenges to finding and staying on your highest path, being authentic, and making choices that are best for you. With the support of your Marriage Educator, you can identify and live the life you really want, and to be more of the person you really are and want to be.
You recognize that a healthy relationship requires growth and adaptability and learning new skills, and the support of your Marriage Educator is invaluable.
