Marriage and Relationships: Keys to Success

Meeting the right person is important, but knowing how to stay in love matters even more. In this course, you'll learn how to build a solid foundation for your relationship that will last far beyond "I do." 

You will start by reviewing the basic stages every relationship goes through, and you'll learn the importance of balancing your needs as an individual with your needs as a couple. You will gain key strategies for maintaining your relationship and great tips for "tune-ups" that help keep love alive, including a frank discussion of the role of sex in marriage. You'll also develop insights into the problems so many couples encounter in married life. Whether you face disagreements over money, the challenges of relationship triangles, or even unfaithfulness, this course gives you the tools you need to identify these problems and work toward resolution. You will discover how to fight fair and arrive at a compromise, or maybe the possibility that it is time for a relationship to come to an end.

By the end of this course, you'll understand how to nurture your relationship and build a partnership that lasts.

Week 1

Maintaining a relationship is a skill that anyone can improve, and in this lesson, you'll start to learn how. Then, you'll find out about the seven stages that every relationship goes through. Knowing these stages will help you to predict problems and defuse them.

Week 2

Explore the balancing act between the focus on the “we” of the relationship and the focus on the two individual “I’s” that define each partner as you find out how you and your partner can each fulfill your needs and still have the freedom to grow individually. Then, learn the rules of fair fighting to properly handle inevitable disagreements.

Week 3

Learn to recognize the warning signs of marital problems that could lead to divorce, and take action to keep your relationship healthy. Then, we'll explore repairing a damaged relationship, dealing with grudges, and rebuilding trust.

Week 4

In this lesson, we'll talk about how to make relationship tune-ups effective and fun. Then, you'll learn how to make sex enhance, not disrupt, your closeness with your partner.

Week 5

In this lesson, we’ll tackle the topic of adultery. By understanding the source of adultery, you can either avoid it in the first place or withstand the emotional turmoil that cheating can bring. Then, learn how to deal with relationship triangles which form when your relationship involves more than two people (children, family, friends, etc.), or when money issues or other problems outside the relationship demand attention.

Week 6

Learn to deal with money issues that may arise and keep your relationship happy, healthy, and loving—regardless of how much money you might have! And finally, we'll talk about reasons to end a relationship and reasons to hold on.
