The Third Option is a group program to build better marriages. It is designed for all married people and can be used as marriage enrichment for healthy couples who want to enhance their relationship, or as crisis intervention for couples who are separated or considering divorce. The class combines skill-building workshops with sharing from couples that have “been there”, and a support group component. The atmosphere is warm and caring. For a couple who is struggling in their relationship, Option 1 is to stay miserable in an unhappy marriage, and Option 2 is to get out – divorce. “The Third Option” is to learn the skills needed to have a happy and healthy relationship. One partner who wants to work at the relationship can come alone, and will benefit. Better yet is if both partners attend.
