Your Marriage Preparation
A wedding is one day - a marriage is a lifetime
probably already spent many hours planning your wedding. There are
so many things to think about - the dress, the cake, whom to
invite, the honeymoon. All of these are important, but the
wedding is just one day, while marriage should last for the
rest of your lives.
Alongside the wedding preparations it is also important to spend
time as a couple talking through your expectations of marriage.
However much you think you have in common, you are still two
separate individuals with different backgrounds, personalities,
experiences, hopes and fears. The minister who is taking your
service will probably want to spend some time with you talking
through these issues.
Churches sometimes offer marriage preparation, perhaps as part
of a group with other couples. This gives you an opportunity to
think through possible areas of difficulty and how you will handle
them as a couple.
Topics might include:
- Coping with conflict
- In-laws and family issues

mark the beginning of a long and very happy marriage.
