Who needs relationship training?
What we teach in this course is vital for anyone who's in or wants to be in a lifelong relationship. Sadly, most people get more training to drive a car than they do learning to navigate a lifelong relationship. If you've ever been in a serious love relationship, you would likely agree that it is infinitely more complex than driving a car. Without the right training, your chances of crashing your relationship are pretty high. (Read More)
We Had It All Until . . .
This Is Our Story
Are You Ready To Take Control Of Yours?
My wife Paula and I both crashed and burned in our previous relationships. If this has happened to you, I don't need to tell you how painful it is. My first marriage failed after 25 years of struggling. I didn't know then what Paula and I know now
Even though I was a psychologist who had helped many people avoid relationship failure, I couldn’t save my own relationship. I didn’t know how to create a healthy “we.” I thought creating a healthy we was about creating a healthy me. If I focused on resolving my own issues, it should solve the problem.
The truth is, I had it backwards. I didn’t understand that a healthy me would emerge out of a healthy we. And that contradicts what many of us have been taught and believe. It’s why relationship education and this Online Course is so important.
So today in my marriage with Paula, we enjoy a completely different way of doing life together. We are enjoying the safety, intimacy and fun of a secure relationship.
We learned early in our relationship the first BIG TRAP to avoid . . . that being committed to commitment alone will not keep a love relationship secure.
I was that guy who was never going to get divorced. No one in my family was divorced. My faith did not support divorce.
Guess what! I was humbled by the fact that being committed to my vow did not save my marriage. People eventually wear down under the stress of a bad relationship and eventually someone in the relationship wants to be released from the turmoil.
What Paula and I learned from the new science of relationships is that we need to be committed, but not just to staying married. This is a recipe for marriage failure. The message in our book and what you will learn in this Online Course is about Emotional Connection and the Relationship Foundations for successfully partnering in life and love.

Here's What Others Are Saying
"My husband and I started the online course a couple months before our wedding and then continued our first couple months of marriage. I can say without a doubt that what Michael and Paula have created here is something that is rarely talked about but needs to be. We took something away from every lesson and were able to not only apply it to our relationship but we were able to see more connection come because of taking this course. More than anything we feel like we have tools to succeed and thrive together for the rest of our lives. We both come from families with deep marriage issues and our hope for our marriage is not only to stay together but that our hearts are forever deeply connected. These lessons gave us the hope and assurance that this is possible. We loved being able to watch the videos and do the activities in the safety of our home and on our own time. Every piece of this journey has bonded us together in a new way. Michael and Paula, we are so thankful to you both for your part in this journey. This course is worth every single penny!"

think Lesson 13 may have been my favorite lesson yet. Emotional
disconnection can only be healed through expressing our emotions to our
partner. This is powerful and life changing for any couple that hears

"It ought to be against the law to marry without passing this course!"

just wanted to say that your Chapter 13 talk was so spot on!!!!! It is
as though you have been living in our home for the past 30 years and
interviewed me, read my mind and my heart before you wrote the talk! And
now I know I was not a bad person for feeling the way I did all these
Of course I did not handle my pursuing in the later years and gave up and went into retreat and became a withdrawer myself. Something was terribly wrong and I was convinced it was with me. I would spend hours praying and asking God to change my unhappiness never knowing it was because of no emotional connection since day one

"Wow! Spot on. Makes a lot of sense as to why people can be so lonely and be married at the same time."
