About Foundations Newsletter

Our goal is to offer resources for couples starting on the journey of married life. No matter how old you are or what your previous experience is, if you are beginning a marriage you have some unique challenges and opportunities ahead of you.

Newly married couples have a lifetime of experiences to meld together into one unit. How will you manage your finances? How will you relate to one another's families? What is your attitude toward the spiritual side of life? How do you like to spend your spare time?

Foundations newsletter takes each of these issues and many others and discusses them in the context of this stage of relationship.It teaches skills that enable a couple to learn healthy ways to handle whatever challenges they are presented with.

When a couple is expecting a baby, researchers have found that they are not interested in learning parenting skills. It's only once the baby is born and they are holding it in their arms that they realize that they need help knowing how to care for their child.

Similarly, couples getting married often feel that their love is enough to enable them to over come all obstacles. But as the marriage pregresses,sometimes things come up that create ripples in the fabric of their love. Foundations aims to be the guide that presents some options of reacting to each other, and of handling the normal stresses of married life.
