Valentines day is right around the corner so it is a great time for some relationship tips. Just as a vehicle needs regular oil changes and tire rotations for long-lasting and peak performance, marriages can also benefit from regular date nights, and working on your relationship. "Dr. Dave" David Schramm, Ph.D., CFLE, stopped by to tell us about classes that will help take your relationship to the next level.

Two marriage conferences are coming up in February and they make for great date nights.

The first one is Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 at the Viridian Event Center in Salt Lake City. Registration and check-in is from 5-6:15 p.m. There is a preconference session from 5:45-6:20 p.m. called Tech Talks and then a variety of other sessions start at 6:30 p.m. The keynote presentation will be given by relationship expert Wally Goddard. The cost is $20 per couple.
