Why lead marriage education workshops?

Sustaining a cooperative marriage partnership requires high-level skills. No matter how much two people love each other, life as a married couple can be challenging.

When tempers rise, communication breaks down.  Without sufficient skills for talking cooperatively about tough issues, couples can end up bickering fighting, or giving up to keep the peace.
