Write Your Own Two-Year Marriage Contract

house

“I didn’t marry you because you are perfect.

I didn’t even marry you because I loved you.

I married you because you gave me a promise.

That promise made up for your faults.

And the promise I gave you made up for mine.

Two imperfect people got married

and it was the promise that made the marriage.

And when our children were growing up,

it wasn’t a house that protected them;

and it wasn’t our love that protected them —

it was that promise.”

– Thornton Wilder, The Skin of our Teeth

This workshop is dedicated to the thousands of couples who have been through A Two-Year Marriage Contract Workshops and found a stronger relationship in the weeks, months and years that have followed.

After nineteen years of teaching the workshop for A Two-Year Marriage Contract and examining every aspect of our own marriage, and working with other couples, we understand the issues that stop love from growing and the skills that can turn that relationship around to once again and allow a relationship to heal and grow.

We also dedicate these workshops to the couples who continue to suffer in silence in lifeless, loveless relationships whose marriages have endured years of emptiness filled with contempt and rancor.  If both parties in the marriage are willing to work through the suggestions in this book, you will find answers to your questions.

A Two-Year Marriage Contract really proves its metal because it is also a fantastic tool to help couples come apart if it’s time for them to do so, without untold grief and personal devastation (that is often felts for years) because after they have completed their Two-Year Marriage Contract, they KNOW what happened to create the breakdowns so finger-pointing is useless and the healing commences.” – Colle and Phyllis Davis, October 18, 2015.

“The three stages of love and marriage:

You don’t know ‘em, but you love ‘em.

You know ‘em, and you don’t love ‘em.

You know ‘em, and you love ‘em.”
