***** GMAIL USERS *******:
As of April 15th, 2014 GMAIL is frequently sending certificates or other materials to your SPAM or junk folder for some unknown reason. Please check there before contacting me if you are expecting the initial letter with the quiz links, and especially when you are expecting your certificate.

Avoid the 3-day waiting period for your ceremony! With this premarital course, you can get married the same day you obtain your marriage license.    

(You can use any credit card and the payment will be processed through PayPal for security. You do NOT need to join Paypal.
The course is $30 and you only need to purchase ONE. You both can use the same course, but will take separate quizzes at the end.)

To Avoid Delay or Denial of Your Certificate:

1. Check your county in the list below.

2. Make sure you use a valid email when you purchase the course.
Links to the course and quiz are sent automatically to the email you use to register. (Be careful of old Paypal account emails. If you use your parent's credit card, make sure that you put YOUR email when asked for an email address.)marriage preparation course Florida

3. Florida law REQUIRES that you spend a minimum of 4 hours on the course
-- no matter who gives it and no matter in what form.

4. Take the quiz AFTER you do the course and most of the activities.

Is Your County On the List? What to do if it is not.
If it is, the certificate will be accepted there. If it is not, you can check with the clerk's office in your county. Another alternative is to get your license in one of the counties where the course IS accepted. Once you have a license, you can get married in ANY county in Florida, but will have to file your paperwork after the wedding in the county where you got your license.

The link expires after a certain number of days and a certain number of access attempts. It is set to the max, but you are better off to download the course and take as long as you want.

If you want both names on the certificate, each of you has to do his/her quiz. If your partner is a non-resident, check with your county. Some require the non-resident to have a certificate and some do not. Email me when you finish so I can review them as soon as possible.

On Fridays,you need to complete it and notify me by 7:30am to get the certificate that day because I frequently have meetings

While some of you are doing this because of a requirement, the premarital course information and activities can help you learn tools to help you create a stronger marriage, if you use them. Use this as an investment in your future! We have some couples in Florida and out of state that take the course just to be prepare themselves although they do not need a certificate.

You will learn:

    How to increase your chances of creating a fulfilling, lasting marriagepremarital course in Florida
    How to communicate and work with hurts & frustrations
    How to create your own blueprint as a guide for your marriage
    How to create or deepen emotional intimacy
    Information on sexual issues, finances and more
    How to increase understanding of your partner's perspective on important issues
    How to give the best gift possible to yourselves as a couple and to your children -- a successful and fulfilling marriage.

    The course has both information and activities. Some of the activities are for you to do alone. Others are to do with your partner. (If you're partner lives in another state or country, you can complete the information part and then do the activities when you get together. You may do some of them after you get married, although I recommend you do as many as possible before. At the end of the course are a series of questions that are important to discuss. The activities are opportunities to learn more about yourself and your partner and to create emotional intimacy.

While I try to help you get the requirement completed as quickly as possible allow one full business day. NOTE: On Fridays, you must complete your course before 7:30am Friday mornings to be able to insure that you receive your certificate that day.

• What Other Couples Say About the Premarital Course

Thank you so very much for the informative online course that you made. I have been together with my partner for 9 years and we are still learning new ways to communicate and I appreciate all of it so very much.  
    --Monica--

The course was wonderful and even though we have been together a while, we both learned something new about each other during the time we took taking this course. Thank you for putting it together and I would highly recommend it to my friends who may consider marriage.
   --Corey--

I was unsure about taking this course as I did not think it was needed. I was incorrect. This course has opened up my mind to new topics of discussion with my partner and now we spend a lot of time talking deeply about different topics. Thank you!
   --Donna--

I was pleasantly surprised with this course. Learned a lot about my fianceé and myself along the way.
