Building a Life Together
Committing to each other is a big step, but don’t worry. With more than 40 years of research into how relationships work, the Gottmans are here to give you the tools you need for happily ever after. Building a life together is all about turning “me” into “we.” Approaching a relationship from a perspective of “we-ness” takes intention and the willingness to explore each other’s most treasured hopes, dreams, and goals. These conversations, videos, and exercises come from years of research and study from The Gottman Institute. They will help you discover what trust and commitment looks like in your unique relationship. And you can explore ways to have fun together to keep the thrill alive!
