Speaking on the crucial topic of "Effective Communication in Marriage", Mr. Machado gave some very practical and useful tips to the mixed age group audience who had come to listen to the talk. "Realize that no one 'wins' an argument", he pointed out to the couples explaining that it was, "much easier to resolve differences, make plans, or share disappointments, if you both are committed to the fact that you are on the same side." He went on to show the "5 Sides of Intimacy" and the "Characteristics of Intimacy" before closing with an in-depth understanding of ones relationships with ones in-laws.

This is the second of a series of talks on the family that began on 3rd March and would go on every Friday till April 28th barring Good Friday on 14th April. The previous talk on "Choosing a partner" was the first of the series and was given by Br Francis Fernandes from the Charismatic Group of the Holy Family Cathedral. For the benefit of those who missed the first talk, a printed summary of the same was distributed.

The next talk scheduled for 17th March will feature a very lively speaker from the Couples For Christ (CFC) speaking on the topic of "The Roles of Husband and Wife in Marriage", Mr. Dominic D'Souza, the co-coordinator of the Young Adults Fellowship in Christ group informed.

The venue will be Room #9, (Ist Floor) at the Holy Family Cathedral Premises and the talk will begin at 7pm. Aimed at building and renewing the family, these talks are meant for all Singles, Couples, Children and Families in Kuwait. "Every talk is important as many a times we don't know what difference God can make in our families if we make him the center of our lives," said Hazel D'Souza, one of the organizing members. "We are looking forward to see many more couples, families and children in the forthcoming talks which will include topics like Marriage and Family Values, Roles of husband and wife, Importance of the Holy Spirit and Bible in the family, Importance of Eucharist in the family, Parent child relationships and Handling finances within the Family." "There will also be a special healing service for singles and couples on one of the days", she informed. For the benefit of those who missed the previous talks, a printed copy of the same will be made available.
