Research indicates that the biggest struggle during the first few years of marriage is due to unmet expectations. And it is not surprising that nearly half of the divorces filed in India are filed within the first year of marriage. There is also a lot of research demonstrating that successful marriages require each person to use healthy relationship skills, almost every day! The guided conversations in this program will not only help you lay a strong foundation by discoveries of each other but also will equip you with the essential relationship skills you both would need when you kick-start your new journey.
The Team-of-Two Foundation Program is a one-of-its-kind personalized online one-to-one marriage mentoring program. It offers a safe and non-confrontational space for you and your fiancé or newlywed partner, to mutually discover the ‘us’ in your relationship while embracing the ‘me’. The program hand-holds you beyond the conversations of your favorite movies, dishes, hobbies, etc. into each other’s inner worlds and leads to the discovery of deeper facets of each other like origins, values, dreams, aspirations, goals, etc. It has been designed keeping in mind the potential struggles that erupt in marriage.
This program is based on the science of intimate relationships and years of research-backed frameworks that are derived from what actually works in a thriving relationship, and not based on idealistic generalized projections of what a relationship should be. It includes personalized assessments of the couple’s relationship dynamics, stress-maps, personality, strengths, growth areas, and much more.
The program is also unique, as it provisions you to invite your parents and your in-laws for an informative one-hour discussion on healthy couple & family interaction, and healthy family boundaries.

As a couple, we were doing many new things in the lockdown. When we found TLT, it was just another lockdown activity, but it turned out to be much more than that. We actually had so many surprises and so much fun while we discovered about each other and built a stronger bond through all the sessions and activities. We were taught to work with ourselves and our relationship. We also realize that the same techniques can be applied for all our relationships. Thank you Sophia and team TLT.

This program helped me work on my relationship with more understanding. I realized that with their input and my own efforts of doing some little things and changes, many things have started changing towards the better. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to build a stronger bond in their relationship with their husband or wife.

I was feeling lonely in my relationship most of the time. I was finding it difficult to talk to anyone, I am close to. Somehow my family and friends couldn’t understand how I felt. But I felt heard and understood at TLT. Taking this program, helped me to talk to my wife with more clarity and understanding. I feel she understands me better now and I am more open to understanding her too.

There were great conversations that happened through this program. I am so thankful to Sophia for the warmth and understanding she showed. The insights, tools and methods she provided, guided us to identify the stress points in our marriage and bridge our gaps.

Ours is (going to be) an arranged marriage. Due to the pandemic, I could only meet him online because even the girl-seeing happened online. I was not too sure whether he and I are a good match. My mentor asked me to contact TLT who I believe she had referred to many of her students. This program helped me and my fiance know each other much better. Feeling much more confident now and waiting for our wedding in January.
