BYU CAPS Premarital Workshop Summer Term 2021
July 12thth – Aug 9th Live: Mondays 4-6pm
Hybrid: In person and Zoom
Room: WSC 3211
This workshop is no additional cost and is for engaged and newlywed couples (up to about 6 months married): At least one member of the couple must be a current BYU student.
The workshop will focus on these four themes:
- What does a healthy relationship look like? Foundations for a successful marriage
- Communication and handling conflict positively: Do you want to be right or do you want to be married?
- Healthy sexuality in marriage: The talk your parents wanted to have with you
- Unity: Equal partnership and defining dreams of what you both want your marriage to be about
The final fifth session will be a financial planning for BYU newlyweds presentation, a presentation on sexual pain issues from a pelvic floor Physical Therapist, and a Q&A.
*Couples are expected to attend all five workshop sessions
Premarital education and counseling have been shown to have wonderful benefits for marriage over the long run. Marriage preparation programs like this have been shown to cut the divorce rate by more than thirty percent. We’re excited for the opportunity to help couples right from the start to create the kind of marriage they both want!
