Marriage Preparation Program

Welcome to our Calgary marriage preparation program! 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 10am – 5:30pm with two experienced marriage counsellors 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.
