Love and Respect Registration Required



Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts unlovingly when feeling disrespected, and a wife reacts disrespectfully when feeling unloved. Though we all need love and respect equally, the need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue. Join us for this 10-week course. The cost is per couple and includes a workbook for both.
