Prepare for Success

We are excited about your decision to plan and prepare for your future together. Marriage preparation can help the two of you recognize and enhance your strengths, clarify your expectations for marriage, learn and practice communication skills, improve your conflict resolution skills, and develop more emotional and sexual intimacy. Most couples can create and maintain a strong relationship by developing healthy relationship habits, prioritizing their relationship and ongoing efforts to make their relationship worth their commitment to it. It is unfortunate that up to fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. And of those who stay together, only 50% report being happily married. This could be taken to mean that only 1/4 of married couples consider themselves happily married.
