Marriage and Relationship Education

What is Marriage and Relationship Education?

The Marriage and Relationship Education program provides pre-marriage education and relationship enrichment for couples.

Using the latest clinical research, combined with hands-on experience, professional educators help couples to reflect on their relationship, build marriage and relationship skills and establish core values, goals and aspirations as a couple.

Marriage and Relationship Education offers three distinct courses for couples, including:

  • Becoming One. A group-based marriage preparation course.
  • Intimate I. A smaller group course designed to allow couples to focus more deeply on the topics covered in Becoming One.
  • Intimate II. A series of three tailored face-to-face sessions with a Marriage and Relationship Education facilitator. Most suitable for long-term couples, couples with children from current or past relationships and couples who may have been married before.
