A premarriage course is an opportunity for two people to get to know each other more and discover what each wants from marriage.
A premarriage course is where two people grow in love together and listen to great ideas from premarriage course facilitators on how they can make their relationship even stronger.
A premarriage course should be a place where two people have fun and feel closer to one another after taking part.
