Marriage Insight prepares participants to achieve successful, deeply satisfying, lifelong marriages. Pre-marital couples learn to set realistic expectations, achieve synergy as a team, and overcome the challenges common to all marriages. Key areas include understanding and meeting each other’s needs, effective communication, finances, decision making, conflict resolution, and intimacy.
The Marriage Insight program involves three one-two hour sessions prior to the wedding, each requiring about 1.5 hours of preparation (each participant receives a manual). The program also includes up to four additional sessions in the first few years of marriage to help the couple remember, evaluate, and apply what they learned, and focus on any issues identified in the pre-marital sessions. This biblical, proven approach is based on more than six years of original research with more than one thousand couples.
Please note, Marriage Insight is not for those who are faint at heart! It is a challenging program designed to help you achieve your full potential as a spouse. To get the most out of it, you must approach it with the right attitude. A satisfying marriage requires a deep commitment to learning what it takes to succeed and then putting this knowledge into practice. You can do it, we can help!
