Preparing for Marriage

Get your marriage off to a great start by learning essential skills to help you build a strong foundation for a lasting marriage.

Class Information

Saturday, 9:00AM-3:00PM

You’re engaged and LIFE IS CRAZY. Not only are you super-excited to spend the rest of your life with the one you love, you are in PLANNING MODE. And, truth be told, you are more focused on planning for the big day than the rest of your life.

We totally get it.

That’s why we created Preparing for Marriage. It’s a six-hour session for you and your soon-to-be spouse to become equipped and prepared for what comes after you say “I do.”

We believe marriage is the journey of a lifetime. It’s filled with highs, lows and all the in-betweens, but with the right information and tools, there is nothing the two of you can’t conquer together.

In Preparing for Marriage, you’ll learn how to:

  • Manage conflict
  • Communicate and clearly and effectively
  • Set expectations for your first year of marriage
  • Handle the in-laws
  • Plan for budgets and finances
  • Date your spouse for a lifetime

You may see this as “just one more thing” for you to do before the big day, but this isn’t preparation for just a day, this is preparation for a lifetime.

Need more reasons to register? Our marriage educators do more than give you information in a classroom setting, they engage with you through activities and conversation. Plus, a full meal and snacks will be provided. Six hours will go by before you know it! 

Preparing for Marriage is an investment in your relationship you’ll never regret. AND, if you live in TN & GA, this experience will qualify you for a HEFTY discount on your marriage license! (Lucky you!)
