Meeting the right person is important, but knowing how to stay in love matters even more. In this course, you'll learn how to build a solid foundation for your relationship that will last far beyond "I do." We'll start by reviewing the basic stages every relationship goes through, and you'll learn the importance of balancing your needs as an individual with your needs as a couple. You'll gain key strategies for maintaining your relationship and great tips for "tune-ups" that help keep love alive, including a frank discussion of the role of sex in marriage. You'll also develop insights into the problems so many couples encounter in married life. Whether you face disagreements over money, the challenges of relationship triangles, or even unfaithfulness, this course gives you the tools you need to identify these problems and work toward resolution. We'll consider how to fight fair and arrive at a compromise, and the difficult question of when it's time for a relationship to end. By the end of this course, you'll understand how to nurture your relationship and build a partnership that lasts.
