At our marriage courses, you will be served with a candlelit two-course meal followed by tea/coffee at a romantic table for two, while listening to practical talks that are informative and fun, either given live or played on DVD. The Marriage Course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, co-authors of The Marriage Book and The Parenting Book. There are thousands of courses now running around the world.
Why do the course?
'Our cars need regular check ups and MOTs, athletes need to continually train and require coaching to improve perfomance, and most things come with practice, training and dedication.
It is the same with marriage. A strong, loving and lifelong relationship doesn’t happen by chance. It takes effort and dedication to keep the fun and romance alive. We can all learn how to make even the happiest marriage better.
Who is it for?
- Are you married or in a long-term cohabiting relationship?
- Have you been together for over a year?
- Would you like your relationship to be the best it can be?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions then this course is for you!
The Marriage Course is for any couple, whether you have been together for one year or 61 years and whether you feel you have a strong relationship or are struggling. If you have a strong marriage this course will help you make it even better and will reinforce your good habits. If on the other hand your marriage is in difficulty, the course will help provide you with very practical tools to help you work through the issues. Whatever your situation, the practical tools you learn will help improve and strengthen your relationship. There is never any group work and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner
While The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles, it is designed for couples with or without a Christian faith. Many couples who are not churchgoers have commented that the Christian content was presented in a way that did not make them uncomfortable at all.
