About the course
Whether you’ve known each other ten years or 10 months, choosing marriage is a big step for any couple. Planning a wedding can be a hugely time-consuming task but have you put as much thought into preparing for your marriage? On average, couples spend around 250 hours planning their wedding day but little if any time spent on planning for a successful marriage!We have a passion for marriage, and want to see couples and marriages in Suffolk thrive. This year we will be running The Marriage Preparation Course at our lovely venue in Woodbridge.
Over 5 evenings the course covers topics such as: keeping love alive, building and maintaining good communication and how to resolve conflict.
The evening starts at 7.15pm and consists of a meal, followed by a series of short talks interspersed with exercises and questions for you to discuss together as a couple. At no time during the sessions will you be requested to share anything with anyone other than your partner.
These sessions allow you to take time out from your wedding planning and give you the time and space to think of the bigger picture and to consider important issues for the future of your marriage.
