Creating a Happy Marriage and Love Relationship

By Roger K. Allen, Ph.D.

Once the glow of romance fades, couples, including those who were once madly in love, experience conflict, disappointment, and even despair. Some feel the disappointment so deeply that they decide to end the relationship. Others pretend that everything is okay but settle for less than they ever desired. Others try to sort things out and work through their issues.

Here’s the good news. There is a vast body of research on happiness in marriage. We know what happy couples do differently from unhappy couples and these practices can be learned. The purpose of this course is to give you the insights, tools and skills to build a happy and stable relationship. You’ll learn how to be more emotionally accessible, attuned and connected to one another.

Here’s what you will take away:

  • Understanding of the five stages of marital satisfaction including where you are and next steps in your journey.
  • How to replace toxic patterns of interaction with actions that build unity.
  • Greater respect, acceptance and love for your spouse.
  • Practices to build positive feelings and friendship.
  • Differences between women and men and how to better meet your spouse’s needs.
  • Greater responsibility for your own feelings and needs.
  • How to have more open and vulnerable communication.
  • Skills to handle disagreements and conflict.
  • The mindset and communication skills to have a great sexual relationship.
  • A shared vision of the future.

Your relationships more than any other factor, define your happiness and the quality of your life. And there is really no relationship that matters more than that with your life partner.

Who is This For?

  • Anyone who wants to improve their relationship skills
  • Couples who have been together for years
  • Couples just getting started
  • Couples who have a good relationship but want to go to the next level
  • Couples who are struggling
  • Singles and dating
  • Divorcees
  • Counselors and coaches who want to do more work with couples

Two Ways to Do the Program

One is as a couple. It’s nice if you talk it over and decide to learn and practice together.

The other is as an individual partner. It’s common for one or the other spouse to feel a greater desire to improve their relationship and so the other option is to go through it on your own. Not only will you learn a ton but you’ll begin to realize how much one person can do to make your relationship better. As you change, your relationship will change and improve. Your spouse will likely notice and begin mirroring the changes you’re making, whether he or she goes through the program or not.

Course Outline

Section 1: Overview including resources and tips to get the most value from the course.

Section 2: The Five Stages of Marital Satisfaction (a roadmap to improve your marriage) as well as the four toxic patterns of interacting that kill love and prevent you from achieving a loving relationship.

Section 3: Self-responsibility.  It’s hard to be a great partner if you don’t accept responsibility for yourself—your needs, feelings and behavior. We’ll talk about how to be accountable for your own emotional reactions and how to make positive choices when things go wrong.

Section 4: Honor your partner. Your partner is a unique person, distinct from you, someone who has the right to his or her own feelings, needs, thoughts, and choices. This section is about understanding your differences and appreciating your partner, becoming committed to their happiness as well your own.

Section 5: Friendship and unity. You are companions in this journey and the happiest couples nurture each other and know how to have fun together. A number of lessons in this section will include steps you can take to build a more satisfying sexual relationship.

Section 6: Connection and communication. We’ll explore different styles of communication and how to make it safe to talk openly about your needs, feelings and expectations and allow your spouse to do the same.

Section 7: Resolving conflict. You’ll learn the art of dialogue and a powerful three-step process to not only resolve disagreements but in a way that preserves your trust and goodwill.

Section 8: Shared vision. You’ll not only define your shared vision but create a marital coat of arms and put in place some structures or routines to help you achieve your vision.
