Why sign up?

Sustaining a cooperative marriage partnership requires high-level skills. No matter how much two people love each other and how well matched they may be, the project of living life as a married couple can be challenging.  Difficult stresses can gradually corrode a couple’s initial love.  Tempers can rise and communication and cooperation can break down.  Without sufficient skills for talking cooperatively about tough issues, couples can end up bickering, fighting, or giving up to keep the peace.
