Couples Connect is premier service which offers opportunities for traditional couples and LGBT couples to experience a deeper connection to one another through personal coaching, couples coaching, connection retreats and social gatherings.   Same-sex couples share many commonalities with heterosexual couples. The day-to-day activities of their lives often are similar, but the social context in which they live differs greatly, largely due to the influences of the dominant heterosexual culture and traditional expectations of gender roles within a relationship.   Many same-sex pairs may experience extreme stress if every day supports are lacking in their lives—for example, familial, legal, religious, economic, and social support.    Couples Connect offers tools to navigate social conditions as well as empowering couples to live full and expressive lives together. LGBT or STRAIGHT, I CAN OFFICIATE!   Before saying "I do," participate in Couples Premarital Coaching or attend a Couples Connection Encounter.
