January 14th, Jeff and Ashley, Baltimore, Maryland: “It opened up subjects such as contraception and sex that usually led to arguments…”
His: “I think it forced us to talk about subjects way more in depth than we have done before and that helped us to get to know each other even better. I did not receive the same Catholic education as my fiancé so I was able to learn a lot from this course that I didn't know before.
I enjoyed the honesty of our sponsor couple. They were very down to earth in their examples and it allowed us to connect more with them and develop greater confidence in their advice.”
Her: “I thought it provided a lot of great insight into tips that can help support our marriage in all aspects - spiritual, financial, etc. It exceeded my expectations. I would agree it was nice to hear the comments that show that they aren't perfect either but they are able to overcome the daily struggles of married life and still hold God at the center even if it is hard some times.
Both: “It opened up subjects such as contraception and sex that usually led to arguments and not mutual understanding before and now we think we are able to see the right path and support each other in following that. “
January 15th, Kevin and Sarah, Lewistown, Maine: “It allowed us to become more in touch with our faith.”

Her: “I appreciated the feedback and the timely ness. Yes it met my/our expectations.”
Both:“It allowed us to become more in touch with our faith.
We plan to abstain until our wedding, practice NF, pray together and attend weekly Mass.”
