    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.

    Listen to experienced marriage experts Gary and Joanna Koh as they share the secrets to deeper, more meaningful communication with your spouse, in this highly engaging and interactive session.

    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
    夫妻如何解决冲突

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

    Venue: Capital Tower, Level 9, STI Auditorium Singapore, 168 Robinson Road S(068912)
    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.

    婚姻具有满足人生活中情感、生理、社交等需要.。美满的婚姻是个人成长发展的基础和生活幸福的重要保障。夫妻关系是婚姻的主干,如何妥善处理夫妻之间出现的矛盾冲突,是所有将要或已经步入婚姻阶段的人们应该了解和探讨的重要课题。

    由于现代的夫妻普遍缺乏应对婚姻中出现的问题的相关知识和解决能力,夫妻之间的冲突显得极为常见,而且难以避免。有时矛盾甚至不断激化,使夫妻在维持美满婚姻时遇到极大困难。

    夫妻的冲突大多源于一方或双方欲求不满,冲突的出现是未能满足需要的一种表现。通过对夫妻之间常见冲突原因的分析,提出一些化解冲突的方法和技巧,帮助人们不断调适夫妻关系,维护婚姻的健康和稳定。
