OngoingUnique Aspects of a Marriage Care Support Group
- Deals with PREVENTATIVE CARE, as over against CRISIS support.
- Rather than being bonded by common trauma or suffering, couples are bonded by a mutual desire to strengthen and enrich their marriages.
- Offers an introductory experience in marriage enrichment as an encouragement for couples to find ways of continually strengthening their marriages.
- Offers couples an opportunity to gain new friends that could prove to be long lasting.
