Maintain the joy your whole married life.Congratulations on your Engagement!

We hope and pray that this time of preparation is both joyful and meaningful – you are undertaking a great journey together, one that will have both its challenges and rewards, and we want to wish you every success.

During this time of intense planning for your wedding, it’s easy to get distracted from the most important part of your plans – preparing for a new life together. Marriage is meant to be a joy-filled partnership. Yet for many couples it becomes more like an endurance marathon! While the idea of ‘marriage being hard work’ may seem like a foreign concept to you when you are so in love, for too many married couples, it becomes the unfortunate reality.

Good relationship formation before you begin marriage, and regularly throughout, will help you maintain the joy and the passion that seems effortless now.

Here, at the MRC, we are dedicated to developing resources and programs to help people in all stages of their life to live fulfilling relationships. We are delighted to be able to offer you SmartLoving Engaged. This program will not only prepare you well for marriage, it will also set you on a course of formation that will help you keep your relationship healthy and vibrant throughout your life together. We look forward to being of service to you over the coming years.
