Marriage

What is it?

The Marriage Course is a very practical, giving any married couple the tools to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime. Over seven evenings spent together, couples talk about important issues that can get swept under the carpet in the rush of daily life.

Topics covered include: Recognising each other’s needs, learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurt, knowing how to make each other feel loved, relating to parents and in-laws, good sex, making time for each other and having fun together.

Privacy as a couple is always respected. There is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

What is involved?

Each evening begins with a romantic candlelit meal, with music. Afterwards, there are short talks followed by opportunities to discuss the topic together as a couple. The setting is welcoming, relaxed and unthreatening.

Who is it for?

The Marriage Course is for any married couple who wants to build a strong and lasting relationship, especially: Those who want to enhance their marriage, those in the first five years of marriage, those at a challenging stage in their marriage e.g. birth of a child, career change, teenagers at home, the ’empty nest’ and those struggling with issues in their marriage.

The course, while based on Christian principles, is very helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.
