Renew Your Marriage with 10 Great Dates

BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2011 – Remember when you first fell in love with your partner – the exhilaration and eagerness you felt? Through a fun, romantic and marriage-enriching program offered by Catholic Charities of Buffalo beginning Jan. 5, you can re-ignite that same spark, connection and creativity in your relationship.

“10 Great Dates” is an award-winning marriage education program that helps couples recharge the fun and conversation in their marriage. First, couples meet together as a group. Each session begins with a meeting at Catholic Charities Marriage Counseling Center in Amherst, where the theme for that particular date is introduced through a 15-minute marriage skills video.

The couples then go out on a “great date” of their own, where they incorporate the skills learned in the video to communicate more effectively, process anger and resolve conflicts, appreciate differences, encourage one another, develop spiritual intimacy, balance busy lifestyles and more.

“Couples always ask how they can build a stronger intimate attachment,” said David Catalano, Marriage Counseling Center supervisor. “One easy, fun way is by improving the relationship foundation through skills building, which is the primary focus of this program.”

“10 Great Dates” is appropriate for all ages and stages of marriage. The sessions will be held at 6 p.m. on Jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26; Feb. 2, 9 and 16, and March 1, 8 and 15.

Registration and the program cost of $90 per couple can be paid up to Date One on Jan. 5. The fee includes the 10 classes and a copy of the “10 Great Dates” book.

Register by calling the Catholic Charities Marriage Counseling Center at (716) 839-4406.
