Having a Happier Marriage

E.C. and J.C finished Marriage Counseling. Here are their wins:

"The greatest action ever. I am satisfied with the results. Not only has it helped my marriage become stronger but also has helped me identify my faults. It's hard to accept criticism from a professor/wife/friends but when you criticize yourself, you accept it and try to fix the problem. Is this action for everyone? I don't know but I know that it works for me and that is good enough for me. I want to tell all my friends about the action. Thanks again. " E.C.

"I totally recommend it to pretty much any couple. Before I started Marriage Counseling I was wallowing in my pain. I hated the person next to me (my husband). I thought I was never going to be happy again. I thought no way is this repairable. As we started the counseling it was tough but we stuck with it. As we went on I realized so many things about me and why I act or do things I do with my husband. I learned a lot about him too. I know there will be bumps along the road. Some bigger than others. But now I realize why our actions hurt us and will stop before it happens. I don't get wrapped up in pain, sorrow, hate -all the lower emotional levels. I can pull myself out. I now know what my future can hold and it is in my control." J.C.

Gaining the Ability to Create a Better Marriage

E.C. completed the course Starting a Successful Marriage. He says: "Since I have started and completed my course "Starting a Successful Marriage", I have noticed many changes in the way I treat my wife and others. I have been told for many years "you make up too many stories". I think this is because I always wanted to impress people. Now I love myself because I know people will like me for who I am. The biggest part of my life that has changed is my marriage. I have learned to talk to my wife, to apologize when I do something to hurt her feelings and to be honest with her. I don't interrupt her while she is speaking because I should care what she thinks and feels. I have learned that marriage can not bloom by love only, but needs attention and constant attention. You leave love alone and things get complicated. I have also used the tools learned from this course in my everyday life. I have more patience with my customers. I avoid interrupting people and act as if I care. If I don't understand something, I ask for explanations. My life with my wife can only get better with using the tools provided to me by the course. Thank you for all your help. "
