The Marriage Map

Creating Firm and Intimate Boundaries

The frame is like the boundaries of your relationship. It is firm and it is intimate. It clearly defines the relationship.

cansave Can Ballroom Dance Save Your Marriage?

Studies show that after 10 years less than 50% of Marriages are still “in love.”

Drs Michael and Barbara will perform The Stages of Love with Broadway and Beatles tunes to enlighten and entertain you with the inevitable changes that you will need to navigate in romantic relationships.

According to Doctors Michael & Barbara Grossman, authors of The Marriage Map, “There are 2 critical mistakes that kill romance in marriage.”

Mistake #1: Too much nurturing without sufficient excitement and autonomy.

Visual: Slow Dancing – holding each other very tight, no room for self-expression

Mistake #2: Too much excitement and autonomy without sufficient nurturing

Visual: Dancing rock n roll style, individual, separate wiggling, no touching

Ballroom Dance is a perfect metaphor to create the balance of intimacy and autonomy which can create continuing passion and romance in your romantic partnership.

Drs. Michael & Barbara will demonstrate their DANCE Formula for Igniting Romance:

Defining boundaries

Attractive to the other

Navigate different roles

Continuous feedback

Extend self outside the frame

This evening will give you a vision of the stages of romantic love and show you the skills you will need to maintain romance and passion over a lifetime.
