The Good Marriage ... YES, there is such a thing !

Is your marriage a case of “and they lived happily ever after”? Do good marriages only exist in fairy tales? Has your negative behaviour adversely affected the intimacy and passion in your marriage?

Even happily married couples get depressed, fight, lose jobs, struggle with financial difficulties, go through crises, deal with sexual and other addiction problems.  CEP will introduce the Choice Theory which advocates that “the only person whose behaviour we can control is our own”.  Find out how to focus on improving  your marriage instead of trying to change your spouse.  Learn the “nine psychological tasks” that a couple must undertake in order to develop a positive and intimate marital relationship. Learn how to achieve work-life harmony in traditional and companionate marriages.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does CEP provide and how is it different from other couple programmes?
CEP bases its sessions on church documents and encyclicals relating to marriage and family, such as Familiaris Consortio, Humanae Vitae, Redemptor Hominis. These teachings are brought down to earth with the help of testimonies from couples in our community about how they struggle through and overcome issues of modern day marriages, like work-life balance, in-laws and bringing up a Christian family.

CEP teaches life skills developed by modern day psychologists and psychiatrists (eg. John Gottman, William Glasser and Judith Wallerstein) to help couples work towards building an emotionally intelligent marriage.
