Marriage Preparation Workshop

Marriage preparation is designed to help couples build a healthy marriage. Research suggests that the first two years of marriage are the formative years in which couples establish life-long patterns of relating to one another.

 

Customized Just For You

 

Each couple will be given access to the online Prepare-Enrich premarital tools, which include a comprehensive relationship questionnaire. The questionnaire is designed to identify unique strengths and areas for growth in your relationship. Also included in the cost of the course is an individual session to review the results of your questionnaire with Jenny. The outcome will be a deeper understanding of each other’s personality and interaction styles.

What People Are Saying About Marriage Preparation

“My husband and I took the marriage preparation course at Cornerstone Counselling the spring before our wedding. We found it incredibly helpful in facilitating conversations that I am not confident we would have discussed otherwise. Through the teaching and exercises we were able to discuss matters and come up with a game plan without being in the heat of the moment. Jenny was very knowledgeable and had many insights into our relationship which we found very helpful. I found the set up and timing conducive to discussion and relationship growth. Overall we loved it and found it really did enrich our marriage.”

 

“We signed up for the workshop initially because it was a requirement if we wanted to be married by a pastor at our church.  However, we thoroughly enjoyed it and if we had known such a workshop existed, we would have gone anyway.  It was incredibly beneficial.”

 

“It was a fun and informative workshop.  I had a lot of fun and learned a lot.  I would recommend this to anyone that’s planning to get married.”

 

“Very organized, informative, clear, and fun.  I learned a lot and this class will definitely be helpful for my marriage.”
