Building Better Marriages is an ongoing, drop-in workshop now offered at TWO Jackson County locations. An MMJ facilitator explores a new topic each week in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.
Is MMJ’s Building Better Marriages Workshop for you?
Every couple can use a little home improvement!
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.
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 will help your marriage thrive, not just survive.
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.
