"We really loved the Marriage Course. It was a real boost to us to have time each week to enjoy fabulous food and time together being able to talk and discuss particular aspects of our marriage. It was a real help to have opportunities to talk over major areas of our married life - some of which we had talked about before, but good to review them, as well as work through areas of married life which we have never discussed, or we will face in the future. In particular the encouragement to keep working at time together each week was an important reminder to us, as it so easily gets lost in busy lives." Ruth & Paul Bye July 2011
"Looking back, we were slightly jaded parents with 3 small children when we started the course...we took so much away from it...we learnt much more about each other: what made us happy, and what caused conflict! We also learnt how to invest in each other...we didn't realise how important that would be. We are now a very happy & stronger couple, (& family) enjoying life together. We really appreciated the chance to gain these fabulous life skills!"
