Prepare/Enrich Pre-Marital Education

Prepare/Enrich helps couples establish stronger relationships and get to know each other like never before.  Whether you and your partner are seriously dating, cohabitating, engaged or married, this program will help you build a deeper, healthier relationship for years to come.


Prepare/Enrich Pre-Marital Education 

  • Are you engaged, thinking about engagement, or newly married?
  • Do you and your partner have disagreements that could have been avoided?
  • Do you know your partner’s attitudes on important life issues like finances, where they want to live, the importance of career, if they want children, closeness to parents, etc?
  • Do you know how to discuss these important topics?

The PREPARE/ENRICH system for couples counseling has been around for over 30 years and over 3.0 million couples have participated in the course.  It is highly valid & reliable – with national norms based on over 500,000 couples (For more information on this research please visit and click on the “Research” tab).


It is a counselling system in which you and your partner take an online assessment, then sit down with a counsellor to review the outcome of the assessment and work through the results report.  Following this, with your counsellor you will complete the couples' workbook exercises and skill development practices to strengthen your relationship and awareness of yourself and your partner.

The major goals of the PREPARE/ENRICH Program are:

  • Explore strength and growth areas
  • Strengthen communication skills
  • Identify and manage major stressors
  • Resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model
  • Develop a more balanced relationship
  • Explore family of origin issues
  • Discuss financial planning and budgeting
  • Establish personal, couple and family goals
  • Understand and appreciate personality differences

The relationship areas which are assessed by the inventory include scales for communication, conflict resolution, roles, sexuality, finances, and spiritual beliefs; personality factors and match; couple and family styles; and relationship dynamics.
