All couples begin with a strong commitment to making their relationship successful. Yet 41%-50% of them end up in a divorce – in fact, one in every four adults in the US has been divorced at least once!
Without realizing it, most couples have unrealistic expectations about their marriage fueled by myths and popular media. Moreover, many of us don’t have good role models for relationship and despite our best intentions we end up repeating old patterns.
Additionally, while preparing to get married, conflicts and struggles may surface that couples may never have encountered previously.
In this workshop you will learn the necessary tools to make your love last. We will help you build your strengths and resources as a couple and will teach you how to avoid the common mistakes made by most couples. Through this process copules gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of each other and of relationships in general.
In the workshop you will learn:
Through working with hundreds of couples we have identified the essential skills and knowledge that every couple planning to have a life together should know. The workshop is practical and experiential – in every segment you will learn new information, practice it immediately and will have the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback.
Compared to one-on-one premarital counseling, this workshop has twice the amount of time at almost half the cost and is led by Gal Szekely, founder of The Couples Center. The workshop allows a concentrated learning environment where being with other couples enhances your own experience. We respect your privacy – you don’t have to share anything in the group if you don’t want to.
For an optimal learning environment we only take a small number of couples per workshop, so register today.

– Joelle Budimski
My biggest takeaway from the couples workshop was learning each other’s style of connection… I also learned not to try to make my partner strong in the same ways that I am. Instead I can think more about really appreciating how we are different.
