About the event

Who to marry is one of your biggest decisions in life. However, it is even more important to decide: How do you want to be married? Who do you want to be for your most significant person?


If you are planning to marry or have recently married, we want to help you with this marriage prep course to start your marriage adventure. For 4 online sessions and 2 presence meetings, we want to walk alongside you and help you grow. You will get a better understanding of who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there.


We especially welcome intercultural couples. But even if you are both Germans you will realize there are most certainly cultural differences between you and your families of origin!


This course is:

  • Personal: We are not afraid to talk of our failures if it helps you learn.
  • Interactive: Giving you a lot of space to talk with each other and with us.
  • Intense: Every session will be packed with ideas, tips and challenges.
  • Bi-lingual: Everything will be translated (English & German).
  • Online - Live via Zoom
  • Designed to make you ask the important questions!

We welcome you to visit us in Hainichen on Saturday, 21st of September and Saturday, 16th of November. The first day will help us grow together as a group, while the second will close up & celebrate. On both days, there will also be an input session. If at all possible, please come!


Topics include:

  • What's your story? Getting to know your cultures, families of origin and personalities
  • Money, Power and Timing
  • Communication, Conflicts and Forgiveness
  • Love is a Covenant, not a Contract
  • Sexuality, Intimacy and Trust
  • Where are we going? Common Values, common Goals
