FORT CARSON, Colo. - A free “Be My Valentine” couples seminar is being offered by the Army Community Service’s Family Advocacy Program at the ACS Nurturing Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Feb. 14.

Fort Carson soldiers, spouses and even those who are dating are encouraged to attend the lunch which will be served on location.

“It’s a day we bring couples in for a short, fun workshop for love,” Ken Robinson, Family Advocacy Program Specialist, soldier and Family Readiness Program, ACS, said. “We’ll be teaching them a model for loving each other a little better. It’s educational, but it’s still a fun event.”

The participants will learn about the many facets of love, the top ten principles for deepening love in intimate relationships and will have an opportunity to focus on what is important between partners, said Robinson.

“We want the couples to come out with deeper levels of love for each other,” Robinson said.

The seminar’s focus on relationship also provides tools for conflict resolution.

“What we know is that when couples get involved in programs they reach out and get help when something happens in the relationship,” Steve Frost, victim advocacy coordinator, Family Advocacy Program, ACS, said. “They realize the classes are about having a good time with their spouses.”

To register for the "Be My Valentine" class call (719) 526-8747. For more information concerning the class call Ken Robinson at (719) 524-1991.
