Why take a Marriage Prep workshop from us? We are a heterosexual couple with many gay and lesbian colleagues, friends and clients. We are sensitive, accepting, compassionate and interested in helping gay, lesbian and bisexual couples create successful relationships. We have always supported same sex marriage in a national coalition of marriage educators.

From the beginning of Marriage Prep 101, we have welcomed same sex couples into our workshop, and they have all reported it be extremely helpful. About 95% of what we teach is relevant to same sex couples. Most people want the same things from their committed relationships: love, friendship, passion, commitment, intimacy, companionship, fun, support and understanding.

We will teach you specific skills, tips, tools, and strategies that you can integrate into your relationship immediately. Marriage Prep 101 is really a foundation class in relationships. In 10 hours, we will give you a foundation that you can build a customized version of the relationship that is right for you. Most people want the same things from their committed relationship: love, passion, friendship, intimacy, companionship, fun, respect, understanding and support. We help all couples highlight the positives in their relationships and work on their challenges.
