Alfonso Osorio and María Calatrava

Building the house and home together
In marriage, having clear goals is helpful, but the family is intrinsically different from a business. The how is sometimes as important as the what, and sometimes we have everything we need to build a home and yet the home does not exist or one of us does not perceive it to exist. This initial session seeks to help us understand that, in marriage, the other is our main partner (together), and that the house and the home are at the service of each other. In my marriage, what do I give more importance to, and is there a good balance between house and home? What can we seek to strengthen together during this course to be better off?

With your gifts, you are my appropriate financial aid .
Far from fixating on your differences, remember that your respective gifts are the right financial aid you need. It allows you to be fruitful together (for each other, with children if they come, in partnership and with transcendent projection and vocation). Have you ever been amazed by all that you have received in life? If you do not perceive the free gifts you have received from your Creator, you will not be able to perceive yourself as a gift to your spouse. Have you ever been amazed to contemplate your partner as a gift?

Competencies core topic to be successful in my marriage
Is it enough to love each other for everything to go well in marriage? Is it enough to have good intentions? Can we learn to love better? In addition to loving, it is necessary to know how to do it. We will review some skills and attitudes that can help us succeed in the exciting adventure of marriage.

I want to embrace your soul with my body
We will reflect on the concept of "average orange" and how to value the differences in the couple, including the different ways of living sexual relationships. Also about the beauty of human sexuality centered on love. We will answer frequently asked questions on marital sexuality, the role of sexual fantasies, and the difference between pleasure as the ultimate goal and pleasure as result of a loving union: Is sexuality the shortest way between two marital souls? How can you embrace the soul of your spouse through your body?

Paternity manager. In the same act we love each other and give life.
In the framework of the recognition of human fertility and its application to natural family planning, we will explain the concept of paternity manager. We will reflect on periodic continence as a way of living sexuality rather than as an "alternative" to favor or space pregnancies. Are there days in the cycle where pregnancy is impossible? How can we ensure that the fear of pregnancy does not prevent us from enjoying sexual submission ?

When children don't come
You dream of having children, but have you thought about what would happen if they didn't come? If you already have children, would you know what to say to friends who are going through infertility? And to those who have lost a baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth? We will see how infertility influences the life of a couple and how to accompany those who suffer infertility or the loss of a child.

The financial issue: from my business to ours
The day-to-day life of a married couple is full of decisions in the area of the family Economics . The discrepancies that sometimes arise in how the family income is managed, or the different priorities when it comes to investing savings, can generate tension in the marriage. I would like to offer you some economic keys that would favor a common mentality, taking into account issues such as the matrimonial property regime.

The Education of children: affective maturity and preparation for love
A child is always a gift. That is why having a family demands a great challenge from us as parents. We want them to be happy and capable of great future projects, but... do we feel ready to welcome this challenge? We will answer your questions about their affective-sexual Education and we will share with you multiple resources, according to each age, so that you can respond with skill to the desires of the heart of your children.

Deciding on my family project
Our family is built according to the decisions we make; in some we are right and in others we are wrong. We will work, through internship, so that these decisions are coherent with the values of our family project , are translated into concrete criteria and guidelines, and generate commitment to what we consider valuable. To this end, we will address the following questions: What is at stake in each decision? Are we clear about what is important to us? How do we know that we have made the right decision? How do we convert a value into a concrete decision guideline ? How do we "err with style" when making decisions?

Love Science: What Science Tells Us About Marriage and Love
The dominant culture (Hollywood) very often presents love as a kind of mystery that is beyond our control. Faced with this idea, we find people who insist on a counterpoint that sounds voluntaristic: love is will, it is a decision. But this does not always coincide with our experience: one does not decide who one is attracted to, or a marriage in crisis cannot make the affective and human estrangement disappear by force of will alone. What does science say about love, and how does it coincide with or diverge from the Church's proposal for marriage? Is love on the framework of marriage a rational and possible proposal today?

Knowing marital crises to face them as opportunities
Knowing the conjugal crises, their types and casuistry, can help us to face them better. Sometimes there are difficulties that require an external, professional financial aid , and others can be solved in a more autonomous way, with an adequate context and with small changes that the marriage itself can implement. In keeping with the saying "prevention is better than cure", we will seek to offer practical content that will help participants identify aspects that can be worked on to strengthen their relationship, while at the same time presenting a vision of crises as something normative, to be expected, and, therefore, as an opportunity for improvement and growth.
