Love is blind. Marriage is a real eye opener!”
Are you ready to handle the eye-openers coming your way? Need another good reason to come to a workshop? Here’s a quote from what Seth Meyers Psy.D posted on September 21, 2011 in an article titled “Benefits of Pre-Marital Counseling: Successful Marriage”:
The point is simple: Pre-marital counseling is the smartest decision that any couple can make, and you don’t need to be religious to try it. No matter how cohesive a couple may be, problems and differences will inevitably arise, so pre-marital counseling really functions like the best insurance policy a couple could ever purchase.”
Accommodations for these workshops will be arranged at our Mary’s Lake Mountain Resort property or other on-site condo or hotel room, depending on the size of the group. Workshops will be held in our Mountain Resort property or at a Mary’s Lake facility meeting room, also depending on the size of the group.
We do bring our own religious backgrounds into our programs and offer workshops for both the religious and non-religious (secular). Below are descriptions for both of our programs.
