Can You Be Set Up for Marriage Success Before the Wedding Day?

Yes! Often, engaged couples aren’t given strategies to address, respond to, or fix problems before they arise in marriages. Merge pre-marital class encourages engaged and seriously dating couples to start fighting for their marriages before they begin, giving them spiritual and practical tools they can apply for years.

Be Prepared for a Healthy Marriage

Couples rarely get opportunities to see the practicalities of merging two very different lives before the marriage begins. When two lives merge, there are two sets of expectations, two views on finances, two family histories and childhoods, just to name a few.

Merge pre-marital class provides wisdom, biblical counsel, and guidance for engaged and seriously dating couples. The class addresses:

  • A biblical view of marriage
  • Communication & conflict
  • Biblical roles in marriage
  • Strengthening your relationship
  • Finances
  • Expectations & family/in-laws
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Understanding your spouse
