“Marriage preparation counseling is a means whereby you can begin to prepare for those challenges and for the rewards of your married life.“

About the Program

Preparation for marriage involves countless “things” for you to do: planning the ceremony, arranging for the reception, sending out invitations etc. But you know that the most important preparation is that of your hearts. As persons planning to marry, you know that married life is filled with rewards and pleasant surprises. But you also know that marriage may also, at times, be a challenge.

“Although the intent of this program is not to provide therapy and problem solving for you as a couple, instead, the program will help you to look at yourself as an individual in terms of how you communicate and relate to others, especially your future spouse. It will enable you to explore your family of origin and the affect it may have on your marital relationship. And, most importantly, this program will be a safe place for you and your partner to explore the mystery of yourselves and how you can avoid pitfalls which might threaten the stability of the marriage you are so looking forward to.”
