My fiancee Eric and I just completed our Pre Cana course. We found this program to be very convenient as we could not attend the traditional courses in person. It was nice to be able to do this on our own time with out missing work or having to leave our daughter for the weekend.

We both had some concerns when we had to answer all those questions about each other, but found that we are quite similar, have the same goals and do know each other well. We have been living together 6 years and been dating for 7 but we still found areas that we can improve to assure that we have a successful marriage.

We first want to start off by saying thank you. The program you have done is amazing.

At first we both thought it was crazy we had to do this but after we understand why our church wanted us to. It taught us alot and with your workbooks it made us ask questions we probably would have never ask it made us open up on a whole new level. Were both happy we did it and also still go back and go over things In your program.

In our opinion the sacrament of marriage is a honor to receive in the catholic church. Marriage is a union between two people who are in love and God. Marriage is being honest caring loyal and selfless to your partner thru the good or the bad. Being there for your partner at all times even if your mad at each other and can't

agree at that time. Being supportive in each others ideas and not hold judgment.

My fiancee Justin and I just completed our Pre Cana course, attached our the results to the final quiz. We found this program to be perfect for us as we are a military couple and could not attend the traditional courses in person. It was nice to be able to do this on our own time when he was home on leave.
At first I was not sure how it would go when we had to answer all those questions about each other , but was pleasantly surprised when we got just about all of them right!

Hi David, thank you so much for reaching out – this is such a special time in our lives and this class made it even more meaningful. I have printed the pre-marriage course workbooks for both Peter (my fiancé) and I and we are completing them as we speak, some of the questions are rather funny! I found the “Marriage in the Catholic Church” PDF to be so important for us – to read out loud to each other that Marriage is a covenant, a contract, a community, a partnership and most importantly, a family really hit home for us.

  Well, I think Joe and I have enjoyed being engaged and the fun of planning a wedding etc.  But, what we really learned through this program was being "married" is so much more then a wedding and spending your life with a person you love .... its about a life you build and choosing a partner you can go through all of lives tides with. 

We learned  how to discuss "life matters".  For example, no one had every asked us certain things like if a family member was ill , would you take them in? or how far is one willing to go to help the other in any sort of hardship and the values we have as a foundation, It was a good example of our commitment not only to each other, but the new families we will merge and how far we are willing to go for the one we love and also their loved ones. We talked in a serious matter about children and the things we desired for raising a family and our beliefs in doing so.  This is important because we know we are on the same page long before bringing a child into the world and that eases any tensions about finding out the unknown.

Even though Sean and I have been living together for the past 6 years and been a couple for past 8 years nearly, we still found the program useful in highlighting certain areas that we can improve within our relationship for our marriage to be successful.

We have been committed to each other for the these last few years and getting married to us means taking our relationship and commitment to the next level. We want to have a stable structure for our family when that time comes.

We learned a lot about equality in the relationship and in terms of how we are going to manage our family situation once we are married and choose to have children together (i.e the workloads and responsibilities with the children as well as managing a household).

Hi David, We both learned a lot about communication and conflict in a marriage.

The pitfalls of mis- communication and the importance of timing, tone and empathy in having a "good" argument. This portion of the DVD gave us guidance on how to have more constructive arguments in the future by waiting until both parties are ready and determining what we wish to achieve as the outcome of the argument.  

We resolved an issue we didnt know were there (or perhaps ignoring) with regards to family members and taking sides. In fact a couple of the workbook question discussions led to clearing up issues that were left undiscussed/unresolved until now.

We learned a lot about our relationship.

We have been dating for more than 15years but have never really sat down and discussed our relationship like this program made us do. For instance the first section where we had to describe each other using positive and negative descriptions proved both entertaining and educational to us.

The conflict resolution section is definitely something we will take away with us, although we don't argue that much we both feel that once we start a family the stress and strain on our relationship will increase thus bringing with it more possible arguments so we have taken your tips onboard to resolve any issues that may arise in the future. 

All in all we have come away from today's online session happy and confident that we have found who we want to spend our lives together with. 

Regards Dervla and Damien
