Enhancing Relationships: Preventing Marital Distress, Rebecca Cobb


Most people begin their marriage by promising to love each other and to be together for the rest of their lives. However, many of these marriages end in divorce, and not all couples who remain married are happy in their relationship.

Studies of hundreds of marriages and how they change over time highlight some important differences between marriages that last happily and those that don’t. Based on this research, programs to help newlywed couples improve their communication and to prevent the onset of relationship distress have been developed.

Dr. Rebecca Cobb will present information about the content and effectiveness of one of these marriage education programs.
