Marriage Preparation Program for Engaged Couples

pour-le-microsite-mariage

Congratulations on your engagement!

 

Thank you for your interest in our marriage preparation programs. We are excited to get to know you and to help prepare you for your marriage! The decision to marry is one of the most important decisions that anyone can make. Usually, couples marry because they have fallen in love, but learning to love, as opposed to being in love, takes a lifetime. Couples need instruction and practice in living skills – skills that are learned rather than intuitive. This marriage preparation program will provide couples with the opportunity to practice some of the skills necessary to have a successful marriage.
