Q4: Is marriage education the same as counseling?

A: Marriage education is not counseling. It teaches relationship skills and looks at issues which may get missed in the romance of dating and engagement. Developing positive relationship skills reduces stress and creates stronger, more satisfying marriages.

Q5: Is marriage education only for married couples?

A: Absolutely not. People learn about marriage from infancy on. We learn about relationships from the patterns we see with our own parents. When teens and young adults are forming romantic relationships it is a crucial time to start teaching about healthy relationships, which is why MMJ offers healthy dating workshops in schools.
