Marriage Seminar Weekend

Since we are heading into the boring growing old together stage of marriage after 25 years. 

We were surprised by this sudden invitation to a Marriage Seminar this weekend.

I believe God provided us a way to go to Marriage Seminar with Life Gate.  The National MS Society, Georgia Chapter  enabled us to go.

We spent 8 hours of training (yes it was a long day) to improve our relationship. 

We were taught how to connect during stressful times and also dealing with MS.

They showed us new ways to communicate better. 

It was a great help just talking about these subjects.

"I Feel like you are ignoring me, I Feel like you do not listen to me, I Feel like I need alone time" etc.

I Feel like this weekend was sent to us personally by God! 

When being married a long time we can forget how to communicate.

Kim...My first marriage failed, and we have 2 wonderful young men as a result of it. As the old saying goes......something good always comes from something bad. I have no regrets, it was a hard life lesson. I'm glad you and your husband work so hard to make life a little better. I admire you, both.

That's just awesome!!!
We have been married for 11 years and it feels like 40 at times. It also feels like it has been all the bad for a long time, but we're still together, we have never been able to afford a marriage retreat, I am glad you were able to go and many more years of blissful Marriage ;)

It's great that you can find humor like this in your marriage. It's awesome that you were able to go to a marriage seminar. May it help bless your "forever" marriage! :)

Sounds like a good idea, renew each others feelings towards each other. As for me, hubby and I didn't grew apart, instead we grew closer by the day. Perhaps tackling teenage sons problems together make us closer. May you have a great week ahead.

Sounds like a wonderful idea. I've always thought that when we older folks reach a certain milestone in our marriages that we should take something like this. We change as our lives change.
You doing okay?
