Comments from previous classes:
I am glad that I came to the class because ….
My fiancé and I would have never discussed or thought about the
things that were discussed. It opened our eyes?
It helped us to know and understand one another and how to listen and
My marriage is worth anything we do to make it special.
I gained more understanding of the role of the wife, how to respect
and support my spouse.
It prepared me for marriage from a Christian standpoint.
I have seen and realized there are many things one can interpret incorrectly
to completely destroy what God has given you to cherish.
It helps me to have tools in my toolbox to use whenever I see and feel
disorder occurring in our relationship.
I learned so much that I didn’t know!
It got me thinking in different ways – new perspective.
It allowed me to communicate more openly with my partner about issues
regarding our life together.
