Before you get engaged, consider this...
One of the most critical decisions you will make in your life, is the decision to marry. Not only does it have life-long implications, the decision to marry sets in motion a series of events that carry you towards that commitment with considerable force.
Some of the really important questions that a discerning couple needs to ask include:
WHO'S IT FOR?
Committed Dating Couples
Need some help to think through the decision to get engaged?
Want to take your relationship to the next level?
SmartLoving Discern gives you a quality learning experience.
Online Learning at its best
SL Discern is the first 4 lessons of the SL Engaged course (9 lessons).

The Discern Track
Created in response to the feedback from couples, the course walks you through the first four lessons of SL Engaged. These lessons give you some foundational skills to dive deep into your relationship and explore each other's views and expectations. Additional content specifically for discerning couples is included.
Explore yourself, your relationship, your understanding of marriage and your hopes for your future, without the pressure of wedding day timelines.
Although the course is written and filmed in English, the course videos have closed captions that have been translated into Polish and Spanish. The SmartLoving website is also Google Translate compatible making it accessible for those with hearing impairment and English-Second-Language speakers.
