Marriage Preparation

 The Importance of Marriage Preparation

Getting married is one of the most important commitments you will ever make. So, preparing as well as possible for marriage should be at the top of your list of things to do before the wedding.

In fact, doing some type of marriage preparation is far more important than anything you will do for the wedding. Why? Quite simply, because a wedding is one day, whereas a marriage is the rest of your life together.

For over 15 years I have used an assessment call Prepare/Enrich as the bases for 4 to 8 sessions which will give you as a couple the understanding and skills to build and even stronger relationship.

PREPARE/ENRICH leads the way in helping couples explore and strengthen their relationships. The main component of the program is an online survey you each complete in about 30-45 minutes. PREPARE/ENRICH is not just any survey. The items you respond to are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital or married relationship.
