MarriageCare

COUPLES! DO YOU WANT YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO BE ALL IT CAN BE?

MarriageCare IS FOR ALL COUPLES! If you are in a happy relationship, come. If you are not happy, come. If you are just friends, come. MarriageCare for You & Your Spouse, Future Spouse, or Partner will help you as a couple privately to visualize your relationship, put facts behind your feelings, and discover ways to open up doors for more communication and intimacy. Stop taking chances! Your relationship can always be better and happier!

Email askacouple@JesusinPineville.com. You will receive a personal and confidential response from a person who has participated in MarriageCare. Give your ages and status and the response will be from someone similar to you.

MarriageCare is your opportunity to have a unique experience using Prepare/Enrich in a private setting – only you and your loved one will speak and interact with one another while reflecting and praying over your personal information. Only general orientation and education will be provided in a group setting. All else happens only in your private conversation as a couple. Referrals to other professionals are made on request.

Prerequisite: complete Prepare/Enrich assessment inventory online, on or before the deadline, $35 per couple. Scroll down to signup below.

--The percentage of married persons that are “very happy” has dropped to 57%. In 1970 and in 1980 it was 67% and it dropped to 62% for 2000 and 2008. (Institute of American Values, 2009)
