The Third Option is an on-going skills based group program to build better marriages. Each 14 session cycle covers a comprehensive set of tools useful for developing better understanding, sensitivity and trust while learning more effective speaking and listening skills. It is designed for all married couples and can be used both as marriage enrichment or crisis intervention. For hurting couples, who see only two options painful endurance or divorce, The Third Option means reconciliation.
When couples are struggling they will say they have “tried everything” but what they usually mean is they have tried the same two extreme options over and over, never finding what works. (Example: they have stuffed their anger, or they have attacked with it. Neither will give them the marriages they want.)The THIRD OPTION is the middle healthy ground. The Third Option combines skill-building workshops with sharing from mentor couples and a support group component. The atmosphere is warm and caring.
Many of us manage marriage as a series of choices between “his way” and “her way”, between “peace at any price” and “letting it all hang out.” Because they tend to move us to extremes, these options don’t bring us together. With The Third Option you can learn how to break through the clutter of past baggage and misunderstandings resulting in a more effective loving relationship.
Many couples assume that their marriage is strong and effective. They don’t value spending time to ensure that it grows better. Even the best marriages become frayed or unraveled from the stress of jobs, kids, parents or health. Developing the right skills is the best way that even a good marriage grows better.
