On November 17th, the AACC hosted a special ICCA webinar featuring Ted Cunningham, M.A.C.E. This engaging webinar focused on building healthy marriages as Ted Cunningham spoke on Marital Satisfaction: It’s a Choice, Not an Outcome.
In this heartfelt and relatable webinar, Ted Cunningham emphasized the importance of choice in marriage. Good marriages take intentionality and work, and couples need to be intentional about making the marriage fun! Although there are many challenges that surface in marriage, there are also many joys. Focusing on the positive can bring much happiness to a marriage.
Throughout the webinar, he highlighted scriptural passages to underscore his points, such as Ecclesiastes 9:9, “Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun” You do not need to choose between life and spouse—choose both. When couples stop enjoying life and marriage, they blame each other as the source of the problem, question their compatibility, repeat mistakes and develop patterns, close their hearts, isolate from others, doubt their futures and explore other options. Ted Cunningham provided encouragement, fun, and simple, easy-to-follow solutions for couples to increase marital satisfaction.
