What is the focus of marriage preparation? Do we really need it?

During Rev. Frank’s course, you’ll grow closer, understand each other that much more and deepen the love you already enjoy. The focus will be to strengthen (not evaluate) your relationship. Instead of long, tedious classes it will feel more like a series of romantic “conversation dates.” You’ll be able to relax and enjoy the experience!

How is Rev. Frank’s approach unique?

Rev. Frank’s 40 years of experience working with engaged couples gives him a genuine passion for working with couples preparing for marriage. Couples often comment that his approach is open and non-judgmental, very relaxed, engaging and fun. His focus is on you and the unique relationship you enjoy. During the course you’ll engage in hours of great talks with each other, and most of your guided conversations will be in private on your own schedule. You’ll be able to step away from the details of wedding planning and focus more on your relationship and the lifetime of love and joy you are looking forward to in your marriage.  Learn more »
