Class Outline

President Spencer W. Kimball noted that "marriage can be more an exultant ecstasy than the human mind can conceive." While we would all love to attain such happiness in marriage, how can this be accomplished? In this class we will discuss eternal truths, guiding principles, and empirical research that can help couples continue to pursue their own extraordinarily happy marriages.

  1. Discuss the importance of expectations (realistic and eternal)
  2. Learn ways (and whys) to continually nourish the marriage relationship
  3. Understand the role of balance
  4. Recognize the need for repentance and forgiveness
  5. Increase desire for charity within marriage
