GREENVILLE — Dr. Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs present the Love and Respect Marriage Conference at EUM Church, 1451 Sater St., on Oct. 2 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. and Oct. 3 from 8:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The cost is $15 per person through Sept. 21 and $20 per person after that date. For more information or to register for this video conference, go to www.loveandrespect.com.

The conference is based on Ephesians 5:33, which says, “So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband” and the three principles taught in Dr. Eggerichs’ best-seller,”Love and Respect.”

The Eggerichs believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved. They asked 7,000 people this question: When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected? Eighty-three percent of the men said, “disrespected.” Seventy-two percent of the women said, “unloved.”

The Eggerichs conduct conferences and provide resources to the married, divorced, separated, dating and single. Men and women will learn how to resolve conflict, dealing with the negative reactions (the crazy cycle). They will also learn how to motivate each other by meeting each other’s need (the energizing cycle). Even those who feel hopeless in their relationships will gain understanding on how to handle an indifferent or unresponsive partner (the rewarded cycle).

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is an internationally known public speaker on the topic of male-female relationships. Based on over three decades of counseling as well as scientific and biblical research, Emerson and his wife, Sarah, developed the Love and Respect Conference, which they present to live audiences around the country.
