MARRIAGE PREPARATION COURSE (ENGAGED COUPLES)

Topics covered:

  • The importance of commitment
  • How to recgonise and appreciate your differences
  • The art of communication
  • Resolving conflict
  • The importance of spending time together and nurturing your friendship
  • Making each other feel loved

THE MARRIAGE COURSE (MARRIED COUPLES)

Regular check-ups help a car run smoothly and reduce the risk of breakdown.  A strong, loving and lifelong relationship doesn’t happen by chance.  It takes effort and dedication to keep the fun and romance alive.

This course runs over 7 sessions (which includes an information night and graduation dinner) and aims to empower couples to experience maximum enjoyment and commitment in their relationship.
