Brenton and Carol Mock, Christian counselors in Pittsburgh, PA offer counseling, classes, workshops that help couples develop a healthy marriage.
What is a healthy marriage? A healthy marriage is a safe, secure, loving relationship that is built on friendship, passion, and commitment. Healthy marriages are strong relationships that can handle life’s ups and downs. They are partnerships based on respect, trust, and a willingness to communicate and resolve differences. They also help each individual grow as a person.
Good marriages don’t just happen. It takes work to build a loving, safe, and secure marriage. It is exciting to know that tools are available to anyone who wants to have a healthy marriage! Researchers have learned that people can learn how to:
• Listen and be heard
• Solve problems
• Support each other
• Understand your partner’s background
• Manage stress
Marriage education is available in a wide variety of formats such as workshops, classes, books, DVDs, and on-line formats.
Whether you are thinking about getting married, wondering how to make your marriage better, or looking to help others, our goal is to provide information, tools, and resources that will help you achieve the healthy marriage you want.
Marriage Myth – Married people have less satisfying sex life and less sex than single people.
• According to a national survey, no they don’t! Not only do married people have more sex, they enjoy it more, physically and emotionally.
Marriage Myth – Living together is just like marriage.
• Living together, or cohabitation, typically does not bring the benefits – physical health, wealth and emotional well-being – that marriage does.
