The first step toward improving or enhancing your marriage is to understand what happens when relationships fail. This has been well documented by Dr. John Gottman’s extensive research into couples that were not able to save their marriages. Learning about the failures can prevent your relationship from making the same mistakes – or rescue it if it already has.
Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new financial concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect the care of the baby. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings. This research-based workshop, developed by renowned relationship experts Drs. John and Julie Gottman, prepares couples for the most important and rewarding job they will ever have: raising the next generation. Couples learn how to strengthen their relationship, create a healthy social, emotional and intellectual environment for their baby, and be the best parenting team possible.
