Most of us enter marriage with great expectations of how perfect a married relationship will be. While no marriage is even close to perfect, a marriage centered on and empowered by God can be the most satisfying of human relationships. Research has shown that certain types of marriage preparation programs are particularly effective at preventing divorce, lowering the risk by as much as 50% when couples practice specific relationship skills.
Married Life Prep combines Biblical teaching with the best current marriage research. The course, taught at MDPC by Brett and Kellie Hurst of Home Encouragement, is based on The Couple Checkup, a research-based online relationship inventory developed by Dr. David Olson and Dr. Peter Larson of Life Innovations, Inc. It also features the New York Times bestseller The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by Dr. John M. Gottman, internationally known marriage authority. Time magazine acknowledged Dr. Gottman as a pioneer in his field. Dr. Gottman’s studies are also cited by many prominent Christian marriage experts in America. His research focuses on creating and sustaining happy marriages.
BONUS! Many pre-marital couples will be able to have their marriage license fee waived through the Twogether in Texas initiative.
