Marriage Preparation Program
Welcome to our Calgary marriage preparation program, which was voted as runner-up for best wedding service for premarital counselling by Avenue Magazine! We have two options. A fun one-day interactive workshop OR 5 one-on-one sessions with an experienced counsellor. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be enhancing your marriage before it starts!
- guided conversations on your life dreams and long term goals
- understanding of each other’s love languages and what to do about it
- grasping your personality styles and improving communication
- tools to resolve differences and fight fair
- what to do about relationship expectations
- constructively handling finances, parenting, in-laws and chores
- improving sex and intimacy
OUR WORKSHOPS – Register Now! Run on either a Saturday or a Sunday. Spend the day from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm with an experienced marriage counsellor and a few other couples in a classroom setting. Enjoy the refreshments and frequent breaks and learn with the aid of a manual, role-plays and video vignettes. Most of the exercises you get to complete with your partner and only share what you are comfortable with the rest of the group.
