Perth: New Marriage Course!

The Marriage Course is a series of seven enjoyable evenings for couples to spend together investing in their relationship. It's suitable for couples at every stage of marriage, and can be used for getting the very best from a good marriage, as well as helping strengthen marriages going through a bad patch. The course comes from a broadly Christian perspective - but has been enjoyed by many couples who are not church-goers, who have benefited from it. In previous years when we have run The Marriage Course, couples have enthused about the difference it has made to their lives. The next course is planned to run on Thursday evenings beginning on April 21st. The course is really practical, down-to-earth, and as fun as it is challenging. Privacy is highly prized on The Marriage Course, so that while there are other couples in the room for the DVD part of the evening - the discussion times are solely between husbands and wives. There are no group discussions, and absolutely no suggestion or even invitation to share anything about your own marriage with anyone else! Likewise when we host the course - we have no idea what each couple are discussing, or how relevant the DVD was to them. We don't pry - just facilitate the evening!

If you are interested in finding out about the course, get in contact (e-mail address on my blogger profile). There are some places still available on the next course, although these will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis! Incidentally, we do ask for a £30 ('or what you can afford') donation towards the cost of the course, including meals and the accompanying book. If you're interested, please get in touch. If you are interested but too far from Perth to join this course, click here to find a course near you. Likewise any questions about the course - just ask.

just leaving a wee comment to thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who might be thinking of doing it.

My hubby and I did it seven years ago and try to remember and practise the things we learned about on the course; especially about ways to communicate knowing what each other's style of communication and receiving affection is and how not to hold onto things without talking them through.

Wishing you all the best with your new course Mr Hideous!

Hello friends,

Making good relationships better. During the course, the couples have time to talk to each other about their relationship.The marriage course gave us some really good ideas and practical help, mainly in the area of listening. Thanks for sharing it.......
