Marriage Matters

As you know marriage is hard work but with great effort a relationship can build the foundation it needs to survive many of life’s challenges. Maybe you’re getting ready for your big day? Thinking about wedding dresses or tasty cake. Or maybe you are just looking for extra tools to help make your relationship stronger. Or make your relationships with others better. Well if that’s you then our Marriage Matter Series is for you.

This year Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension of Fort Bend County, Family and Community Health, will be offering a Marriage and Relationship series (Marriage Matters) designed for those preparing for marriage. This series will cover, those who are engaged, seriously dating couples, and married couples are encouraged to attend. .Many educators gathered to hear presenters from all walks of life. Preparing for a wedding is a lot of work, but the effort a relationship needs to survive needs attention too. When you’re getting ready for your big day – with the dress, the cake, the photographer – don’t forget to consider the most important thing of all. Do you have the relationship tools necessary to equip yourself and your spouse for the journey ahead?

According to Amy Gilford from the Marriage and Relationship Education Center, people are busy and finding the quality time to spend with our spouses has become sparse. Marriage education classes and events allows for couples to have additional resources to help their marriages thrive.

Key topics of interest, including communication and conflict management, family dynamics, sex and affection, setting financial goals, maximizing differences, date nights, and more will be covered.

The cost is free for groups to register. For questions or help registering, please contact, Courtney Bryant, PVAMU CEP-Fort Bend County Extension Agent, Family and Community Health, email or call 2813423034.  Class size is limited.
