Congratulations on your engagement and your upcoming wedding. Your journey is just beginning and it is important that you plan for your lifetime commitment together.
A Marriage Preparation Program is an opportunity for you to gather with other engaged couples and focus on your marriage beyond the wedding. A facilitator presents skills and guides a discussion that will assist you in living out a lifetime commitment in marriage together. You will be amazed how these insights will strengthen your relationship and help build for a better marriage. The archdiocese of Detroit has more details about the Marriage Preparation Program.
One member of the engaged couple must be a participating registered member of OLOW at least one year before wedding date. Call the OLOW office during business hours to request the forms.
