Happily Ever After Means Communication (Face to Face)— 2021-10-04 through  2021-10-04$129— Face to FaceView Details

Mon., Oct. 4, 6-8:30 p.m., University Center Rm. 209. Great communication is the basis of any fulfilling relationship. But most of us will choose someone who communicates differently than we do.

Knowing how to communicate with this person, who is put together differently than you, is essential for a happy relationship. This FUN, small investment will take your relationship to the next level. ALL adult couples of all ages are welcome. Register one individual from each couple so you pay the fee only once (price is $129 per couple).
