    Most couples going through rough spots only see two options; painful marriage or divorce.  There is a Third Option: an ongoing weekly program to restore and build better marriages.  The Third Option program offers hope for hurting couples, and covers critical topics, such as how to fight fair, forgiveness and repair, understanding expectations, control issues and much more. 

     

    Many couples needing a "turn-around" in their marriage find hope and answers participating in these weekly forums.  Attend as-needed to gain support from other couples while learning tools to help rebuild your relationship.

    7:00 p.m. Commonwealth Commerce Center, Auditorium D
    Downtown Jackson



    Ticket Price: Just $5 per person!

     

    Enjoying intimate moments together is an important part of building a healthy marriage, but things like bills, careers, kids and other obligations can move your love life to the bottom of the list.


    MMJ will show you how to make the time, spice up your routine, and find ways to get each other "in the mood." Join us for one of the most fun -- and one of the most sensitive -- topics in marriage.


    MMJ's Shelby Raines will host Maria Current, Jackson's only licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in sex therapy. This casual and upbeat presentation will cover some of the common misconceptions and questions surrounding sex that married couples face. It will also provide tips to help your grow closer.


    Please note: some of the conversation may be a bit graphic, but the lights will be low, so you won't be embarrassed!


    Tickets are just $5 per person and include a goody bag and dessert.


     


    Hosted by Shelby Raines, and facilitated by Maria Current
