How is lockdown life for you and your partner?
Doing great? Getting fed up with it all …frustrated?
Whatever life is like at the moment, hit “pause” and JOIN US for an hour of open, engaging conversation with:
COUPLES TALK PLUS
Monday 25th May 2020
Couples Talk Plus is MORE than conversation, with interactivity and “takeaways” …read on!
By popular demand, hosts Junior and Allison Angel have invited Mark and Christine Daniel, Authors, Speakers and Directors of FamilyLife UK once more to continue the conversation about resolving our conflicts in healthier ways. Hear about how they struggle with little every day disagreements, have come close to divorce, and learned how to forgive and rebuild trust.
JOIN US to find help, hope and practical relationship tools.
Tune in with audio only if you feel like simply watching and listening. Or interact fully via the chat box, because there will be time for your questions to be answered. You’ll also receive our TAKEAWAYS …these are next steps to help you face your challenges and grow stronger, together.

Testimonials from our last Couples Talk
“Thank you so much for your time and passion.”
“Enjoyed the fact that we aren’t on our own with the situation. My first zoom call aswell.”
“It’s been great. Our big takeaway is communication, creating a safe space to talk together. It’s never a Win/Loose situation – it’s Growing together.”
“A very good blend of personal transparency in the contributors, and clarity, sharp focus on some clear-cut, identifiable how-tos.“
“I was great really helpful and encouraging hearing both of you guys – can we not do this zoom more often in this time?”.
“Thank you SO much for making yourselves vulnerable x x.”
“We really enjoyed the session last night and it was good to hear your honesty about not having the perfect marriage, but having the tools to navigate the issues when they arise. We would love to join in another one if the opportunity arises.”
“Thanks guys, this has raised the level.”
AFTER THE EVENT
We hope you enjoyed the Couples Time event. If you missed it and / or are interested in future events then make sure you’re amongst the first to hear by subscribing / updating your preferences to the FamilyLife mailing HERE.
The following questions are for couples to talk about after the event. Take turns answering the questions. You may be touching on sensitive subjects – be kind and compassionate as you talk and listen. The goal is to understand how each other think and feel about the issue, work TOGETHER towards offering and receiving forgiveness and finding a way to move forwards to help build/rebuild trust.
If you are the one speaking try not to blame or criticise; instead say “I felt…when…because…” and use kind words.
If you are the one listening try to understand how your partner thinks and feels; reflect back in your own words what your partner says. “What you’re saying is, you felt…when…”.
- Am I still holding any unforgiveness towards my partner? Is there anything we need to forgive each other for?
- What would help me to forgive?
- What can I do to help build / rebuild trust?
