Some conversations matter more than others in relationships. You connect and fall in love by talking. But what conversations should you have with your partner to know if your love will last—through challenges, surprises, joy, and pain? And if you’ve been in a relationship for years, what conversations should you have to reinvigorate the connection and passion that first brought you together, but may have become routine?

The answers can be found in John Gottman’s book Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. Offering empowering ways to discover the love you want and deserve, this extensively tested program of eight fun, conversation-based dates will result in a lifetime of understanding and commitment, whether you’re newly in love or have been together for decades. Because a happy relationship isn’t the result of having lots of things in common—as we often think. It comes from knowing how to address your core differences in a way that supports each other’s needs and dreams. Every strong relationship is a result of a never-ending conversation between partners. Eight Dates guides you through how to talk—and how to listen—in a way that will be beneficial for you as an individual and as a couple.

The Eight Dates Marriage Enrichment Class is a series of ten sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. This monthly class starts Friday, February 21, at 6:15pm in room 116 at First Christian Church. The cost of the ten sessions is $50 which includes the cost of the class book and materials and helps to offset the cost of childcare. Register for the class & sign up for childcare at www.fccedmond.org/register

Additional Friday Date Nights for 2020 are scheduled for: March 27, April 24, May 29, June 26, July 24, August 28, September 25, October 23 and November 20.
