This month we hosted The Art and Science of Love couples workshop in Seattle, recognized Mother’s Day by asking our readers to share why they love being a mom, and also celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Gottman Institute with our Master Trainers on Orcas Island.
“Month in Review” is a feature on The Gottman Relationship Blog that gives you the opportunity to recap the news and events of the last month. Below you will find useful information and links from May, including mentions in the media, important announcements, blog postings, class photos, and more.

NEW ON THE GOTTMAN RELATIONSHIP BLOG
Over the years I’ve found many myths about relationships that are not only false but potentially destructive. They are dangerous because they can lead couples down the wrong path, or worse, convince them that their marriage is a hopeless case.
CELEBRATING THE GOTTMAN INSTITUTE’S 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
This past weekend, John and Julie Gottman celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Gottman Institute with Etana Kunovsky (Co-Founder), Alan Kunovsky (CEO) and Gottman Master Trainers on Orcas Island, Washington. For 20 years, The Gottman Institute has been dedicated to maintaining greater love and health in relationships through a program of ongoing research, and a commitment to extending our services to people of every race, religion, class, culture, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY
We held a Mother’s Day Giveaway on social media and asked our fans to share why they love being a mom. Rebecca Eanes of Positive Parenting, Michelle Peterson of #StayMarried, Meygan Caston of Marriage365 and Etana Dykan Kunovsky, co-founder of The Gottman Institute, all contributed to the conversation. As a special treat, Dr. Julie Gottman posted a heartfelt message on Mother’s Day about her experiences with the beauty that is motherhood.
