Are You Ready for Marriage?

Happy bride and groom in each others arms Contact Us Now! Prepare for Success

Whether you’re engaged already or soon will be, Premarital Counseling can help you successfully prepare for your lifelong journey together.

Every person is unique, so gaining a better understanding of your future spouse will help you grow closer and deal with any differences discovered now, before they can cause any problems.


To help get you ready for marriage, our Premarital Counseling features Prepare & Enrich®, the nation's leading relationship inventory and skill-building program - with over 3 million couples served!

Prepare/Enrich® will help you:

  • Identify strength and growth areas
  • Explore personality traits
  • Strengthen communication skills
  • Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
  • Compare family backgrounds
  • Comfortably discuss financial issues
  • Establish personal, couple, and family goals

How Does It Work?

Prepare/Enrich® begins with a customized couples assessment completed online that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas. Topics covered by the survey include communication, conflict resolution, roles, sexuality, finances and spiritual beliefs.

The survey takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. However, Prepare/Enrich® is not just any survey: the items you respond to are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital relationship.

Once complete the survey is followed by 5-6 sessions to go over the results. In these sessions we will explore strengths, address growth areas, improve communication skills and help resolve any potential conflicts.

About the Workshop

Start Right, Stay Connected™ is relationship education, not therapy, and includes lectures, demonstrations, couple’s dialogues and written exercises.
