In this Marriage Prep Class segment, you are invited to let God work in your relationship now, as an engaged couple, and for the rest of your life as husband and wife. The presenters consider God at work through the love of husband and wife, through the family, and in marriage through love and community.
By integrating the spirituality of marriage with the practical experience of adults in healthy, committed, married relationships, couples will grow in love and intimacy. You will realize the full meaning of your marriage covenant, understanding there is more at work in your lives than just each other.
Drawing on the wisdom of Christian tradition while reflecting on the lived experience of marriage, our presenters offer their path toward rich spirituality built on basic convictions. They reveal both the challenges and rewards of married life, reflecting on how current theological, cultural, and economic perspectives influence marriage.
