Re-Vitalizing Our Marriage (the book) has two parallel tracks in it aimed at preserving marriages. One helps the couple re-align with spiritual principles and science related to marriage and includes communication and consultation skill-building. Another track helps individuals strengthen their virtues, self-respect, and spiritual practices, as well as addresses issues such as power struggles, perfectionism, and forgiveness. Quotations and stories from married individuals and couples are throughout. Many of these topics will be included in the online course.
Susanne says, “Sustaining a marriage and keeping it happy and unified takes effort, sacrifice, and building knowledge. I hope that this book will accompany couples to improve their marriages and help them see ways to increase support around themselves and their families. We are very blessed to have so much spiritual guidance about marriage and decades of science that help us learn new approaches. Healthy marriages are vital for the well-being of families, communities, and society.”
