When it comes to content, we believe that if you teach less, couples will learn more. We believe in less content more often. We believe giving couples a consistent language throughout every environment allows them to build on what they have learned. We call this core content— Core 4 Habits of a Great Marriage:
Have Serious Fun
Respect and Love
Love God First

MarriedPeople Volume Two builds on, but doesn’t depend on, MarriedPeople Small Groups Volume One. Every session explores each Core Habit in a different way than in previous volumes. For instance, in Small Groups Volume One, under the Core Habit: Have Serious Fun, we look at the importance of dating.

Besides dinner, bedtime with children, or during church, how often do you and your wife pray together?
As Sam Ingrassia discovered when he asked himself that question, a candid answer is not necessarily a comfortable one. Perhaps yours isn't, either. Many—maybe even most—Christian men live with the burden of weakness and lack of confidence in spiritual leadership for their wives. Even a godly man can struggle to initiate regular, intentional spiritual connections with his wife.
Sam knows how widespread the problem is. He's asked hundreds of men—in groups and one-on-one—about how they're doing in this area, and almost to a man, they're missing something significant with their wives. Praying together. But Sam has discovered a profound, hopeful, and simple way to retake this lost ground. Just Say the Word—the Word of God.
By following the guidance Sam offers, you and your wife will open the windows of heaven to your relationship. You'll experience a fresh dimension in your spiritual walk together, one that will bolster your marriage in the storms of life. And you'll be equipped to protect your marriage and family with confidence. Even your children and grandchildren will see and experience the results. Renewed praying with your wife will touch every dimension of your life. MORE

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
The great news is that we all want to have a great marriage, and most of us are willing to do what it takes to have them. The bad news is most of us don't think we know what it takes because we have been convinced that having a great marriage is VERY complicated.
WHAT'S THE ANSWER?
Here's the good news: God's way for marriage might not be easy to live out, but it is certainly easy to understand. God gives us only a few verses on how husbands and wives should love each other. Maybe he did that on purpose. From the precious few Scripture verses on marriage come the . . .

If you are trying to do everything right so you can have a happy marriage, you will probably be disappointed. Why? Because satisfying marriages are not something we can create by following a list of to-dos. Great marriages happen when we surrender completely to the Holy Spirit so He can supernaturally give us the power to love our spouse above ourselves.
In this 4-message series by Pete, he tackles some of the most difficult areas of marriage and uncovers the life-giving promises God makes to us when we allow the Spirit to lead us in our marriages:
Submission and how it's different than you think
Drifting apart - living in two-ness instead of oneness
Finding hope even when your marriage isn't all you want it to be
You are in the center of a battle - a battle to break up your marriage. There are so many forces tearing marriages apart little by little. And much of the time, we're oblivious to the gradual breakdown of our relationships. You may be raising kids, striving for success in your career, or taking care of elderly parents. Then suddenly, years into the marriage, you look across the table at your spouse and realize you're angry, disconnected, or just hopeless...and you aren't really sure why.
Think it can't happen in your marriage? Or are you already in that place and think God can't save your marriage? He can! He will! If you are at a crossroads in your marriage and think you are alone, this 3-message series by Pete Briscoe will show you how Christ can breathe new life into your relationship with your husband or wife.
