Pre-Marriage Education

“HAPPILY EVER AFTER – the Marriage Essentials”

 

You are both in love and want to ensure your commitment will last for life.
You believe your relationship will weather the storms because of the deep love you have for each other, but you are also realistic enough to know that "stuff" happens.
You realise that even with the best of intentions, every marriage relationship will have misunderstandings and disagreements.

 

Our Pre- Marriage sessions are designed to:

  • extend your knowledge

  • enhance your relationship skills

  • improve your ability to communicate more effectively

  • and provide you both with enough tools to build a really satisfying marriage

 

“HAPPILY EVER AFTER - the Marriage Essentials" is a one-on-one programme designed for couples about to get married or who have recently been married. The individual nature (no group work) encourages couples to be open and honest with each other. The sessions are very informative and fun.

 

You will get insights into what is essential to develop and maintain a happy marriage as well as
finding out what will help when things change or become difficult.

 

Our sessions will provide you the nearest thing to “insurance” for your own “happily ever after”.
