September 24th Adam and Rebecca- Scottsdale, AZ “Very in depth and informative.”

Both: [It] gave dedicated time to discuss things and just talk everything through while sharing our opinions with each other.

September 26th Kyle and Christina-Wading River, NY “Sometimes you lose sight of that in this world and it was nice to have a reminder.”

September 28th Ben and Lauren-Chico, CA “It definitely renewed my desire to get closer to God and his Church”
Him: I appreciated most the teachings of what marriage means as a whole. This will give me more perspective and ownership of my role as a husband to the woman I love.

Her: I thought the class was great overall. It covered a broad range of topics and really sparked some conversation that we may have not had otherwise.

September 29th Mark and Ashley-Sacramento, CA “It helped me get back in touch with God which is something I haven't been able to do since changing employers and not having easy access to a church.”
Him: I appreciated that the classes made us sit down together and chat about our upcoming marriage. It was nice to not have to plan details for the actual day, but rather discuss how to think about marriage for the long run.
Her: The course was a firm reminder that marriage is a sacrament and we are celebrating this union in front of God. With that, it reaffirms my decision to get married in the church. As for the course itself, the teachings were presented very different than how I was brought up as a Catholic. They were very focused on the bible and specific teachings and interpretations of readings, whereas I was raised for the readings to be lessons and applicable to modern day life.
Both: It made us take turns which seems simple but isn't often how we communicate. We both would like to continue that practice.

September 17th Sean and Kylie- Washington, LA “It made me realize that prayer would be the glue of our relationship”

Her: We definitely started to appreciate attending mass together more, and I began praying more as a result of this marriage prep. It made me realize that prayer would be the glue of our relationship.
Both: It definitely made us closer and appreciate the mass more. Prayer is the glue, receiving the sacraments is the glue. It revived my faith a bit I would have to say.

In the process we learned more about each other and were given useful, practical strategies that we can use to treat each other love, kindness and respect.
Her: It reinforced some of the tools we knew of to build a strong marriage (communication, forgiveness, etc.), and it provided additional tools to help us build a strong marriage (marriage first-aid kit for example) centered in Christ.

Her: I appreciated the explanation of how man and woman were perfectly designed for each other in so many ways and the value of a marriage in God's eyes in a world that tries so hard to challenge your morals.
Both: We were able to discuss things in black and white when questions were asked. Things weren't asked in a round-about way so we were forced to address topics that we may not have gone so in depth about before. Most of the things reviewed we had already discussed but it required us to go more in depth about our feelings.

September 20th Michael and Melissa-Colorado Springs, CO “It revived my faith because this course clarified where I need to put emphasis”

Her: I appreciated the deeper philosophical lessons such as forming a conscience. I thought we received great feedback that tried to deepen our understanding of the catholic lessons and strict interpretations presented by the catholic [church] I took more practical tools away from the lessons that broke down how to communicate better and fuller and in different styles.
Both: We did enjoy the course, it did a really good job in explaining the background to our codes and rules. It did a great job in offering more in depth learning about the teachings, and utilized a variety of media to do so. And there a definitely parts of it that I will carry forward into my marriage and feel we will be stronger together, and in our faiths, because of it.

September 13th Jared and Amanda-Detroit, MI “I enjoyed that fact that it helped me pursue deeper thoughts into my faith and challenged me as Catholic to open my mind and really look into the questions.”
Him: I thought this course has helped us come together and learn new things about each other. We have enjoyed being able to discuss new topics and learn more about our prayer life together.
Her: I appreciated getting the time to sit down with my fiancé and discuss things that we have never really sat down and talked about. It challenges both of us and makes both of us more comfortable and wanting to pursue our faith together.
Both: We believe it improved our communication by making us discuss hard topics and what we each think as well as putting our thoughts together. Communication is such an important factor in a relationship. During tough times communication on each other’s feelings is key.

Both: [The] knowledge of the Bible and the teachings of the Church really helped add value and understanding to our relationship, and it was refreshing to hear some insight from a former military couple as well!

September 3rd Seabastian and Jessica- Whittier, CA “100% satisfaction. It was such an eye opener to life, God, our relationship and our faith.”
Him: I was amazed how much I learned, it brought me closer to my religion. It also opened my eyes to many different topics. I am so glad I was able to share this experience with Jess.

Both: It made us prouder to be a Catholic and continue being part of this community.

September 4th Jaron and Andrea-Spokane, WA  “I appreciated the conversations on relationships, and how to handle conflicts.
Him: I was actually surprised at what was discussed, and it definitely gave us cause to discuss things as a couple that we hadn't before. This is surprising given that we have been together 8 years!
Her: I thought that the prep was pretty comprehensive in its discussion topics. I liked that a few social justice issues were discussed, especially as they related to religious marriage. This also gave me an opportunity to consider some aspects of the Catholic faith that I hadn't put thought into before, even after attending a Catholic university.
BothWe thought it greatly improved our communication! We found ourselves talking about things we hadn't before, and even about subjects we normally avoid. It was really good to be forced to discuss these things, and we feel stronger as a couple because of it.

Both: A lot of the questions brought up through this course "forced" (in a good way) us to talk about issues never-before spoken about. Our thoughts are now, that we can talk about anything with each other.

September 6st Jared and Amanda-Detroit, MI “I appreciated the personal experiences and advice that was given to us…”
