The process of this course positively re-shaped our relationship

November 20th Joe and Moira- Youngstown, OH “The sacrament of marriage is a way to grow closer to Christ and God.”
Him: I was pleased with the prompt feedback provided by the instructors. They took time to provide answers to each of our questions and gave lengthy discussions that will help us grow closer to each other in the future.
Her: I think this course came at a very opportune time in my life, personally. I had been struggling with my life on campus and wishing to have a way to connect with others in my faith and have new resources to reflect on (and also to really spend time with Joe discussing these sort of things as we prepared for our marriage) and this course helped me all of those things. In a sense, it helped strengthen my faith because it provided resources and a means of doing so.
Both: It provided the opportunity to discuss things we had each expressed a wish to talk about at different times. The guided questions and structure of the course made these discussions more fruitful and productive. We were able to go more in-depth in areas we may not have otherwise, or thought about exploring further.

November 21st Benjamin and Aileen- Rockville Centre, NY  “I really enjoyed this prep. The instructors were fantastic, and the amount of information and feedback we were given was amazing.”
Him: I really enjoyed this prep. The instructors were fantastic, and the amount of information and feedback we were given was amazing. I would have to say the love letters. When I was away at boot camp I would write Aileen every night, and the love letters brought back a lot of emotions. It was in boot camp, through our letters, that I knew she was the woman I would marry. Being able to express myself in writing to her, and for her to do the same was amazing.
Her: It by far exceeded my expectations. The questions really made me think and spark deep conversations with Ben.I would have to say I appreciate the Love Letters most. Writing back and forth with Ben reminded me why I love him so much. We were able to open up and I can now have these memories forever.
Both: Our communication is already great, but this course did open up new conversations. We both know how important our faith is and this course let us discuss it more thoroughly.

November 22nd Jack and Angelica- St. Louis, MO  “We really had to take the time to sit down and communicate through all these worksheets…”
Him: Very helpful in teaching us and allowing us to delve deeper into and communicate about certain aspects of marriage that we had not discussed previously.
Her: It was incredibly informative and helpful. I am so happy Jack and I did this together. We learned so much about each other and I truly feel that this course has educated us to have a wonderful marriage together.
Both: This marriage prep course allowed us to get together every week and discuss the assignments, we learned things about each other we never knew, and we grew deeper in love and connection with our spirituality and God. We greatly improved our communication!

November 23rd Chuck and Chioma- Owerri, Nigeria  “The class opened my eyes about a lot of things.”
Him: It renewed my desire to get closer to God and His Church. The teachings in this course, starting from the lessons at the Garden of Eden allowed me to better understand God’s love and patience for humanity. This revived my faith.
Her: The marriage course is very amazing, and I learned a lot from it. I learned the importance of sacrament, the importance of abstinence before marriage, and what marriage is all about which is inviting God to your union. The danger of contraceptives and the benefits of NFP. It taught me how important it is to forgive my spouse. And above all, the tools of marriage and the things that can endanger our marriage.
Both: The process of this course positively re-shaped our relationship. It gave us insight on how to live together and provided us with tools to have a happy marriage. Taking this course together allowed us to engage in deep conversations and made us think about how to handle real-life situations.

November 25th Bukky and Oghenetega- Atlanta, GA “It highlighted important points about the Catholic faith especially pertaining to marriage and helped us both to thirst to have God as the foundation of our marriage.”
Him: Beyond what I expected. The feedback which helps us see from a different perspective about various topics.
Her: It highlighted important points about the Catholic faith especially pertaining to marriage and helped us both to thirst to have God as the foundation of our marriage.
Both: We both accept to discuss more on what each of us does not like and allowed for us to understand that we disagree to agree to accept each other flaws.
