The Marriage Preparation Course

What is the Marriage Preparation Course

The aim of The Marriage Preparation Course is to help couples lay the foundations for a relationship that will last a lifetime.

Who is the Marriage Prep Course for?

Created by Nicky and Sila Lee, the Marriage Prep Course is designed for couples considering marriage and wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. Based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background. Sessions begin with supper, followed by a chat and time for discussion. At the end of each session you are given some homework to do together. This will help you to build on what you have learnt and give you the opportunity to apply it to your relationship. Don’t worry – it won’t be marked! It isn’t looked at by anyone else and is just for your own benefit.

What does the Marriage Preparation Course cover?

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of commitment
  • How to recognise 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
