Why Go?  My Marriage Is Fine. From Guy and Jan Hanson, Axmen, Missoula 

     "I’ve been blessed to have been married 36 years to an amazing wife. I know that our success, in all the things we have done, is rooted in our commitment to each other. We have tested each other’s patience at times and we haven’t always agreed, but we have found ways of making things work. 

     I went to the Gottman training for the same reason I started taking my kids to church. I knew it would be good for them. What I  discovered is that it was good for us – not because we weren’t happy before – but because we didn’t realize how much more we could empower each other and how much more joy we could experience. I went because one of my kids was struggling and I left convinced that all of our lives could be richer.  Ironically, the same result as engaging in our faith community 35 years ago. 

     My brother and his wife also went. We have been business partners for 43 years. We discovered that the basic principles of maintaining and building a relationship apply just as well to our partnership. It takes tools and skills to make it really good. That is what Gottman training is all about."
