“Relationships: Managing Life Partnerships” (Part II)

Irwin Hall Theatre, Beirut campus

This is the second in a series of two lectures (the first is on January 21) 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 second lecture will cover the following:

  • What is a good timing for the first pregnancy?
  • Do we have a healthy home environment?
  • To which extent does the marital relationship affect the children’s mood?
  • Is it realistic to expect your partner to change what you dislike after marriage?
  • How much influence do family members/parents have on a couple?
  • What could lead to marital infidelity?
  • Is s/he having an extra marital/relational affair?
  • Is intimacy at the workplace recommended?
  • We have been friends for too long. How risky is it to become intimate?
  • Should the spouses have a joint bank account?

Both lectures will be presented by Dr. Raed Mohsen.
