Call (231) 995-1700 to registerHappily Ever After Means Communication— 2019-05-02 through  2019-05-02$129— Face to FaceView Details

Thurs., 6-8:30 p.m., University Center Rm. 212. Great communication is the basis of any fulfilling relationship. But most of us will choose someone who communicates differently than we do. Those who need to verbally process often choose those who need to get away and think about it. In the end, it is often not the issue at hand that causes stress in a relationship, but the manner in which each partner communicates. 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 welcome. Register one individual from each couple so you pay the fee only once (price is $129 per couple).
