In The Marriage Conversation marriages that continue to become healthier, more vital, more interesting, more fun – tend to enliven everyone around them.

Not only do they create a safer world for children, research shows that the people living those marriages tend to be healthier, do better with money, get more out of the adventure of aging and more. We called it the marriage conversation because we wanted to engage couples who were eager and willing to expand and grow. We not only welcome your feedback we ask for it.

With These Rings offers the opportunity to turn arguments into intimacy, chronic conflict and the fear of loss into new beginnings through active, imaginative interaction.
