Marriages


Marriage Preparation

You have probably already spent many hours planning your wedding. There are so many things to think about - the dress, the cake, whom to invite, the honeymoon. All of these are important, but the wedding is just one day, while marriage should last for the rest of your lives.

Alongside the wedding preparations, it is also important to spend time as a couple talking through your expectations of marriage. However much you think you have in common, you are still two separate individuals with different backgrounds, personalities, experiences, hopes, and fears.

This short course is run throughout the year to help you plan for your wedding day and for your married life together. It discusses the vows you make, what they mean and how to keep them. For example:

1. 'All that I have I share with you'...How will we share our possessions and finances?
2. 'Will you love, comfort, honour and protect (him/her)'...How will we cope with disagreements so that we will protect our love and respect for each other for a lifetime?
3. 'Forsaking all others, be faithful as long as you both shall live’...How will we ensure we avoid and/or cope with temptations in order to remain faithful throughout our marriage?
4. 'With my body I honour you' and 'all that I am I give to you'...How will we invest in our sexual relationship throughout our whole marriage? What are our thoughts about parenting?

If you’d like more information on this course then please contact us.
