The 4 Habits Marriage Event
What separates happy marriages from miserable ones?
Surprisingly, it’s not healthy communication. It’s not conflict resolution skills. It’s actually the size of the marriage’s joy gap.
Joy Gap /joi gap/ (n.)-1. The length of time between moments of shared joy
Healthy marriages regularly produce joy, and joy keeps the marriage healthy. But this kind of happiness and health in marriage isn’t just for the lucky few who stumble upon it. It turns out that certain relational skills boost your happiness.
Marcus Warner and Chris Coursey will teach you how to develop those skills and how to:
- return to joy more quickly after disconnection
- create stronger bonds and elongate times of happiness
- boost your enjoyment of physical and emotional intimacy
Anchored in the latest brain science and purposing to honor marriage by equipping couples with the 4 Habits of Joy-Filled Marriages, this event gives you insights, exercises, and a plan for keeping your joy gap as small as possible.
