Did you spend as much time preparing for a great marriage as you did on having a nice wedding?
For many couples, in the excitement of planning a wonderful wedding, it is easy to forget to plan for a wonderful marriage. If you’re looking forward to your wedding day and your future as a married couple, we want you to have a strong foundation for a great marriage. What you do now will make a difference.
Why do some marriages succeed and others fail?
If you’re married, the demands of day-to-day life can distract from keeping your relationship healthy and vibrant. Expectations from work, needs of children and demands of family and friends all seem to chip away at what little free time you have. And, if you’re not intentional, your marriage may wither from lack of attention. What you do now will make a difference.
How do I take my relationship from good to great?
Or, perhaps, you’re just starting out in your relationship. The two of you have met, found each other interesting, and are exploring the possibilities of a future together. This is a wonderful part of any relationship, yet your experiences together will change as you both grow and change. It’s important to understand each other’s hopes, dreams and expectations. What you do now will make a difference.
