Starting Marriage Strong – Marriage Prep Course

🗓 Oct 16 – Dec 11, 2022 (MT, 8 Sundays)

October 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm December 11, 2022 @ 4:00 pm

Are you engaged or thinking about it? Or have friends who are? Starting Marriage Strong is a fun, interactive marriage prep course that equips couples to explore or pursue marriage with wisdom, hope and helpful communication tools.

Get ready for surprising insights, and for honest and intimate, relationship-strengthening conversations just between you as a couple. Over the eight sessions, your hosts will guide you in having essential conversations every couple should have before getting married.

This eight-session, online (Zoom) course will utilize several great resources, including Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts, Alpha Pre-Marriage and original FamilyLife Canada content.

More Course Details

You’ll also be given exercises to help you apply what you’re learning along the way. You’ll not only hear entertaining and insightful teaching from FamilyLife staff, you’ll hear a variety of couples share their own insights and experiences. And don’t worry, the conversations between the two of you will always be private, with everyone muted during those times. You will never be asked to share anything private with the group about your relationship.
