The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. Nicky and Sila Lee, authors of The Marriage Book, developed The Marriage Course for couples looking for practical support to strengthen their relationship. The course is designed to help couples build strong foundations, learn to communicate more effectively, and resolve differences well. The course is designed for couples who are married or in a long-term relationship seeking practical support to keep the spark alive and stay connected.

There is no group work, and each couple’s conversations are private. Over seven sessions, the course will help you to:

  • Understand each other’s needs

  • Communicate more effectively

  •  Grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflict

  • Recover from the ways you may have hurt each other

  • Recognize how your upbringing affects your relationship

  • Improve relationships with parents and in-laws

  • Develop greater sexual intimacy

  • Discover each other’s "love language" and much, much more
