“Relationships: Managing Life Partnerships” (Part I)

Business Building, Room 903, Beirut campus

This is the first in a series of two lectures (the second is on February 25) organized by LAU’s Alumni Relations Office, as part of the “Keep Learning” alumni lectures program. The two lectures will address questions relevant to dating and marital relationships, and will also tackle their effect on professional life. They’re both open to alumni and the rest of the LAU community.

The first lecture will cover the following:

  • What are the acceptable means to meet a potential partner?
  • Are similar values a must in order for the couple to become a unit?
  • Am I marrying the person or her/his family?
  • Am I dating the right person?
  • Do we both have similar expectations of the relationship or the marriage?
  • What establishes a commitment?
  • What are the main tips for a wedding reception?
  • Are our honeymoon expectations realistic?
  • Is jealousy an indication of love or is it harmful to the relationship?
  • How important is trust and respect?
  • How much does a stable or harmonious personal relationship influence one’s professional life?

Both lectures will be presented by Dr. Raed Mohsen.
