We took Marriage Prep 101 at the recommendation of friends who took this couples workshop a few years ago. We didn’t have any specific problems we felt we needed to address other than learning how to manage conflict more constructively (rare issue) but as life-learner and over achiever types we wanted to set ourselves up for success however we could.
We definitely feel like we got what we hoped for out of the class – we uncovered some challenges (or as we like to think of them – opportunities to enhance) that we now have a plan (bond) and tools (keys) to address. We were already pretty aware of our strengths (and our competitive playful personalities often had us verbalizing how ‘awesome we are together’.) It’s crazy to us that more couples don’t take a marriage prep class like Marriage Prep 101. What a critical life experience to not even expose yourself to the most basic summary of empirically validated best practices?
We will definitely recommend Marriage Prep 101 to friends and family and wish it were more culturally standard for couples to take classes like yours – what a happier world it would be.
Many thanks again.
