Communicate Your Way to a Thriving Marriage

Communication is the special link that creates relationships and bonds us with our spouse. Every married person is a unique individual who brings his or her own 'dictionary' to the marriage. Unless definitions are clarified, the words we speak to each other can be easily misunderstood - and as a result, conflict may arise.

Through this session, couples will
• Understand the different ways men and women communicate.
• Be equipped with communication tools to enrich their marriage.
• Know how to respond to conflict in a loving respectful way.
• Learn how to foster emotional intimacy in their marriage.

Through this interactive and engaging talk, couples will learn the secrets to having a marriage with love that lasts a lifetime!

Resolving Conflicts Between Husband & Wife

Date: Sat, 3 Mar 2018
Time: 10am - 12pm
Price: Free admission, registration required

Venue: Lifelong Learning Institute, Lecture Theatre, 11 Eunos Road 8 S(408601)
FAMILY 365 Speaker: Ms Belinda Yuan

Marriage satisfies the various aspects of our human needs, be it emotional, physical, social or others. A happy marriage is fundamentally based on an individual’s willingness to pursue personal growth and development. A strong relationship forms the backbone of marriage. It is thus very important to know how to handle conflicts properly between couples regardless of whether it is before or after marriage.

Many modern couples lack the relevant knowledge and skills to respond to and resolve problems in their marital relationship. As a result conflict occurs frequently and is difficult to prevent. Over time, the disputes may intensify, leading to greater difficulty in maintaining a happy marriage.

Conflict always arises from an unsatisfied need, either from one or both parties. Through an analysis of the common causes, this session will explore the feasible ways for resolving conflict, in the hopes of helping couples to make adjustments and positive changes to maintain a healthy and stable marriage.
