Marriage is an institution which two people commit themselves to for the rest of their lives. This institution has come under threat in our modern society, whereby it is commonplace that we work in close proximity with someone of the opposite sex. There is a real possibility of developing a deep emotional relationship with that someone. When the line between friendship and love is crossed, extramarital affairs occur.

Extramarital affairs can be devastating to everyone involved. What’s disturbing is that affairs can happen even to self-described happy couples. One of the first things people ask is “how could this happen?” The truth is, there are risk factors.

In this talk, participants will learn to be aware of these risk factors in your marriage and also how to identify them. They will also acquire skills to nurture closeness in marriage.

Synopsis

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.
