Couples Connect – Marriage MOT Evening


Marriage MOT evening for Married Couples 

 Ticket cost:  £20 per couple

Friday 23 February 
7 pm: Drinks and nibbles 
7.30 pm – 9.30 pm: Talk and discussion (just in your couple) 

Why not join us for a date night to invest in your marriage? Whether you have been married less than a year or more than 60 years (or any time in between), whether you have a good relationship or are struggling, this is a great opportunity to take stock of what is going well and identify areas that you’d like to improve. 

David and Sarah Abell, the founders of The Relationships Academy, will be sharing about the importance of building and maintaining a strong connection. They’ll be looking at what can impact connection and how to identify and rebuild it when we experience conflict, stress or misunderstandings. 

You’ll discover:    

What strengthens connection for both of you 
How you react when hurt or stressed 
How you impact each other when disconnected 
How to repair and rebuild your connection 
How to develop a resilient relationship
