What is the Marriage Course? The Marriage Course is very practical; giving any married couple the tools to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime.

Over seven evenings spent together, couples talk about important issues that can be swept under the carpet in the rush of daily life.

Couple Hands

Topics covered include:

  • Recognizing each others needs
  • Learning to communicate effectively
  • Resolving conflict
  • Healing past hurts
  • Knowing how to make each other feel loved
  • Relating to parents and in-laws
  • Good sex
  • Making time for each other
  • Having fun together

Privacy as a couple is always respected. There is no group discussion and no requirements to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

What’s Involved? Each evening includes a video and private opportunities (dessert provided) for each couple to discuss the topic and do workbook exercises together.  The setting is welcoming, relaxed and nonthreatening.
