Young Marrieds-Laugh to a Better Marriage-Kaufmann

When: Sunday, Afternoon    Where: 800 Block of Lawn Court Tracy, CA 95304

Through exploring a variety of subjects including the myth of a "soul mate," the different ways men and women think, the conflicting levels of libido, and the necessity to forgive, Gungor proves the key to marital bliss is not romance or destiny - it's work and skill. Couples need to work hard at maintaining their relationship and to have the skills to pull it off. The longer spouses wait to learn these skills, the greater their chance of wanting to bail, yet Gungor makes it easy for couples to bring their relationship to the next level. We meet Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
