Chula Vista, CA 91910
Don and Doris Flor – 53 years of marriage…15 years of strengthening marriages by teaching marriage education skills combined with peer counseling. The reason peer counseling works is because one way that we humans learn is through socializing. We pick up on good habits, learn from others past bad habits; and learn new skills and exchange ideas throughout social networks.
We believe that love and marriage are skill-based propositions; couples can learn how to increase the behaviors that make a marriage successful and decrease those associated with marital distress and divorce. Research finds that we are different about the marriages that make it – that go the distance and stay happy – are behaviors and skills.
