Getting Ready For Marriage

Congratulations! You're engaged and you want to be married.

I don't want to put you off (!) You are at a very exciting and adventurous stage of your lives. Naturally you are looking forward expectantly to the big day. But the wedding day is the beginning of a lifetime together, and marriage is about more than just a church service. So in our preparation for marriage, we will explore together far more than what will happen on that day. I hope we will be able to talk freely together about expectations, joys, concerns and fears (all in strict confidence), and that as you share together in this preparation you will grow closer to one another. I hope too you will come to view me as a friend in whom you can always confide and share.

It may be helpful to you to have some idea of the kind of topics we shall be considering. They are:

Perhaps it sounds daunting. I hope it sounds exciting and helpful. There will be plenty of time for you to talk about anything you want to.

Be assured as you approach your marriage you will be much in my prayers.
