marriage 101

Marriage is amazing and it’s worth preparing for so we set time aside for couples who are approaching marriage. Marriage is a gift but it takes work & patience to love each other. City Lights offers a comprehensive course for couples who are preparing for marriage. The course is run by Dave and Megan Shepherd. There is nothing better than being married. While the odds seem to be stacking against lifelong marriages, there is no reason why yours shouldn’t be a great one. You really are #bettertogether. The course runs over the 5 weeks and includes subjects like:

  1. The Nature of marriage – “Where is it from and what is it for?”
  2. Getting your needs met – “What’s in it for me…I mean you…no me..?”
  3. Acknowledging and loving our differences
  4. Husbands and wives – “Who does what and how do we decide!?”
  5. Flash Points
  6. Communication and conflict
  7. Romance, sex and getting physical

These sessions are covered in a relaxed, easy atmosphere with a small group of up to six couples. Typically an evening will begin with drinks and snacks and then move on to an hour or so of teaching and discussion. A cost of R300 per couple covers all printing materials and snacks. In the past we have tried to do the last session over dinner, and if the group agrees we will do that again at a reasonable additional cost. If you are engaged or preparing to be married within the next four months, we would love you to join us.
