Marriage Journey

Marriage Preparation Programmes

Our Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP) is the starting point where couples embark on this journey as they prepare themselves for a lifetime of commitment to each other.

MPP programme prepares couples for a healthy, enriching marriage and harmonious family life. It is designed to lay strong foundation for your marriage, and offers you the opportunity to discuss important topics like child rearing, finances, life goals and to work out any issues. It equips couples with the necessary skills in managing differences, making room for open communication and facilitating support for each other. The programme includes a marital and personality inventory and caters to marrying, re-marrying couples, as well as married couples within the first year of marriage.

Please do note that MPP is designed to improve and strengthen couples’ relationships and to provide useful skills in charting a fulfilling marriage roadmap. It is not intended to be a substitute programme for couples therapy or counselling treatment.

Our Marriage Preparation Programme is conducted in TWO different formats: Individual Couple or Group Programme.
