Reviews: What our couples say about our Premarital Course
"I started this premarital course expecting that it would corny and not useful, and also expecting that it wouldn't take 4 hours. I was surprised at the discussions it opened up with me and my husband to be--and even found myself thinking of certain couples I know that I feel could benefit from this even though they aren't getting married."
“Although I originally paid for the Pre-marital course as a "let's get the 4 hours over with for the State of Florida," we believe the course has provided us with more insight and given us additional tools we can use to continue toward a happy life. We're jointly committed to a successful and happy marriage, and we're glad that your course has provided us with much more than "just 4 hours."
“Very helpful and totally useful. The premarital preparation course opened my eyes on how I should handle certain situations with my partner of 15 years. I greatly appreciate you providing this course. It was awesome. I am printing it out for someone I know, since she is having marital problems as we speak. Maybe it can help her out.”
What you will learn in this Florida premarital course:
• How to increase your chances of creating a fulfilling, lasting marriage
• More about each other -- even if you have been together a long time.
• How to improve communication
• How to work through conflicts
• How to create your own blueprint as a guide for your marriage
• How to increase understanding of your partner's perspective on important issues
Our Florida premarital course has both information and activities. Some of the activities are for you to do alone. Others are to do with your partner. (If your partner lives in another state or country, you can complete the information part and then do the activities when you get together. Some people do them by e-mail or Skype/Facetime. You may do some of them after you get married, although I recommend you do as many as possible before. Throughout the course you will find 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.
