Self-Inquiry Journal “Building Loving and Lasting Relationships: Marriage 101” Overview As emphasized throughout the course, probably the single most important requirement for successful and happy relationships is self-awareness. With this in mind, we are asking you to stretch yourselves and learn more about who you are by engaging with the Self-Inquiry Journal questions. The questions are often very personal. What you get out of this assignment is directly proportional to what you put in. Honesty and care will pay off in answering them. If you put a lot into this, as we are hoping you will, you will probably wish to save your answers (especially the last ones on plans for your future relationships) for review later in your life. The questions in the Self-Inquiry Journal build upon conversations you will be having each week in your breakout groups (as well as lecture material and readings), so it makes the most sense to answer these journal questions after each lecture and before the next breakout session (between Thursday afternoon and the following Tuesday afternoon). Each entry should be at least 2 pages long (double-spaced with 1” margins). Outside Class Exercises Along with the questions to answer, there are two “Outside Class Exercises” for you to complete and then journal about briefly. Do them when they come up so as to be able to discuss them in the relevant breakout group which follows them (listed below). These should be fun while offering you another avenue to learn about yourself and relationships.

Why did you decide to take this class? Imagine it is June and the end of this course – what are some things you hope to walk away with? Is there anything particular about the course that you are most excited about? On the flip side, do you have any reservations or concerns about this course? If so, what? Explore whether or not you feel marriage as an institution is becoming obsolete. What is one take-away from this week’s readings that you can apply to yourself and/or a relationship you are in? Entry #2: Good Love List at least one take-away from this week’s Perel reading or TED Talk video. Perel (2006) asserts that “adult intimacy has become overburdened with expectations” (p. 2). What are your thoughts? What do “sexuality,” “intimacy,” and “romantic love” mean to you?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
