INSTEAD OF MARRIAGE:
WRITE YOUR OWN RELATIONSHIP CONTRACT

Are you in an on-going interpersonal relationship?
Would your relationship benefit from clarification
of the basic implicit priniples by which it has been operating?
This EXCO seminar will be an opportunity for committed couples, triples, etc.
to discuss 28 open-ended Questions
that should be asked and answered in any on-going relationship.

These 28 basic Questions are embedded in the Internet outline
of the book we will use for this seminar:
Designer Marriage: Write Your Own Relationship Contract:
http://www.tc.umn.edu/~parkx032/RC.html

This link also allows you to read
the beginning of the default Answer to each Question.
If you allow society to answer the Questions for you,
you will have a conventional marriage.

But if you make up your own Answers,
you might create a relationship so different from conventional marriage
that you might decide not to get officially married. 

Here is the comprehensive course description:

This outlines the basic areas of discussion for this seminar.
Details about the book are also available,
including a buy-back option for EXCO participants.

1,000 visitors for each couple that joins?

This seminar for creating one's own relationship contract
will be appropriate for only a small number of EXCO visitors.
How many visitors are in committed loving relationships?
Which of these have lasted long enough
for the partners to have considered getting married?
And which of these potential spouses
are ready to challenge the traditions of marriage?
And of this diminishingly shrinking group,
how many are independent enough in their thinking
to consider creating their own unique relationship contracts?

My guess is that only one visitor in 1,000
will be interested in joining this seminar.

Therefore, this potential class will only become viable
after a few thousand people have visited the EXCO website
and then clicked to read more information about this class.

At the present rate of visitors,
this could take several months or even years.
Everything will depend on how many people view the EXCO website
and then discover this interesting experimental seminar.

As soon as EXCO has a break-thru in media attention,
then classes like this one with very limited appeal
will suddenly become possible.

In the meantime, click to join if you are interested.
And think about other couples who might benefit
from asking 28 open-ended questions
about their on-going relationship.

If you can help to round up more interested couples,
here is the Internet link you can send to them:

James Park, EXCO facilitator
