Get ready to cruise into the next part of your marriage and enjoy the adventure together. 

Major changes in a marriage can take place anywhere between the age of 40-70.  Let MMJ show you how to have fun and steer you through the many changes that can happen in the second half of marriage. We'll be looking at topics such as: 

  • Dealing with an Empty Nest
  • Caring for Aging parents
  • Health & Body issues
  • Teenagers or adult children living at home
  • New family dynamics (grandchildren, married children)
  • Career Changes
  • Sexual issues
  • Retirement decisions

If you do it the healthy and fun way, the second half of your marriage can be a time of learning about each other, sharing dreams and working toward a more satisfying relationship. Based on the award winning book, The Second Half of Marriage, this workshop gives practical strategies for navigating this special stage of your relationship.  

If you are in or near the empty nest - or if you nest has refilled, this seminar is just for you. You'll learn you're not alone, and the second half of your marriage can be a time of incredible fulfillment, no matter what challenges you previously faced or what lies ahead.

Make the second half of your marriage the best half!
