Is MMJ’s Building Better Marriages Workshop for you?
Every couple can use some home improvement!
My marriage is hurting.
You are not alone. Many will go, have gone, or are going through tough times. Relationships can be complicated. Each person brings a history and expectations to the mix, then add in some life events (babies, in-laws, job changes), stir, and you have the perfect recipe for marital stress. Tips and tools you gain at this workshop will help your marriage thrive, not just survive.
You might be thinking “I can’t go on living like this!” Or wondering “Is this as good as it gets?” Or believing “We will never feel the same way we used to about each other.” Marriage Matters Jackson’s weekly marriage restoration workshops have helped hundreds of couples rebuild, renew and regain their relationship. People just like you.
My husband or wife won’t come with me.
That’s fine. When one half of a couple learns skills and gains information, the relationship can improve or grow even stronger. People often come by themselves to MMJ’s weekly Building Better Marriages workshops and take home usable techniques and insight to help their relationship.
We aren’t married yet.
Although MMJ believes in and promotes the benefit of lifelong marriage, there is no “marriage license check” at the door -- relationship skills help everybody.
My marriage is fine.
Great! We hear that all the time, and people who are doing fine still get great encouragement and tips at MMJ events and workshops, like MMJ’s weekly Building Better Marriages workshop.
"Our marriage is stronger and happier now than it's ever been."
"This workshop is realistic and useful for every relationship."
"Arguments are next to gone, after 5+ years of constantly living in a state of anger and stress."
"We were on the verge of divorce and now I believe we will be staying together because of what we learned at the workshops."
Cost for providing the workshops is underwritten in part by Marriage Matters Jackson and donors like you!
