WHO IS THE MARRIAGE PREPARATION COURSE FOR?

The Marriage Preparation Course is designed for couples considering marriage and wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. While based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background. The course begins with supper, followed by a talk and an opportunity for discussion. Privacy is respected, there is no group discussion or group work, and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship, but couples can discuss issues with a married ‘support couple’ if they wish.

WHAT DOES THE MARRIAGE PREPARATION COURSE COVER?

Topics covered include

  • communication
  • commitment
  • resolving conflict
  • keeping love alive
  • shared values

The last session of the course will start one hour prior to the usual start time for the Marriage Prep Happy Hour with bubbly and snacks provided for your small groups. We have found that this is a lovely way to celebrate the end of the course, and we would love it if you could join us for this social hour.

THE COUPLE SURVEY

We also ask you to complete a questionnaire called the Couple Survey. The Couple Survey is completed online. The questionnaire will help you recognise issues to discuss as a couple prior to marriage. Since training is required to interpret the results, we will not pass the results to you directly. Instead, you can meet with your support couple over dinner to discuss any issues. We will email you details of the questionnaire and a link to the website around two weeks before the start of the course (if you register later than this, there will be a delay in receiving the survey).

DATES

The next course will start in 2018. If you want to attend a course before this date please visit www.htb.org/marriageprep.
