How Savannah Date Night works.

Savannah Date Night will be a fun, educational, and interactive evening based on the New York Times bestseller, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Dr. John Gottman.  Dr. Gottman and his wife, Dr. Gottman, are a dream team of researcher and therapist. On this evening, you’ll be working with your local dream team of relationship and social experts.

From the first moment you walk in, Steve and Tricia will make you feel welcomed and happy that you decided to attend this event. You’ll have a chance to relax, have a drink, and even meet other couples if you decide to.

After the cocktail hour, your co-leaders will guide you through helpful communication strategies to improve your relationship. You’ll hear what they have to say, see them role-play the concepts in front of you, and then give you a chance to practice each skill privately with your partner.

Don’t worry, couples won’t be asked to disclose any personal information about their relationships to others. Instead, you get to work honestly and openly with your partner, privately and in real-time based on the tools shown to you.


  • Enhance your relationship

  • Communicate more effectively

  • Learn tools to last a lifetime
