Time for marriage tune-up?
When was the last time you took your marriage in for a tune-up?

 “How is your love relationship doing? “ Take the mini marriage check up, below, with your partner and check the health of your relationship.  Review the following statements to see if you and your partner agree with them.

  1. We are often playful together. We have fun, just the two of us. (Agree or Disagree)
  2. I feel comfortable telling most of my feelings to my husband/wife/partner.(Agree or Disagree)
  3. I feel understood when my husband/wife/partner listens to me. (Agree or Disagree)
  4. How we manage money as couple is a strength in our relationship. (Agree or Disagree)
  5. Sex is a strength in our relationship. (Agree or Disagree)
  6. We understand and respect each other’s basic values (Agree or Disagree)

If you and your partner agreed with all these statements then celebrate your accomplishments!  If you found yourself disagreeing with one or more of these statements then maybe it is time for a “marriage check up”.

Through a one-hour interview, couples can learn about the strengths in their marriages, potential trouble spots, and resources to help strengthen their relationships.

Contact us about having you and your partner participate in a Marriage Check-up.
