Premarital Coaching FAQs
1. What is premarital coaching?
Premarital coaching is designed for engaged couples who will be marrying soon. The coaching is provided by Kevin Bullard, president of Marriage Works! (learn more). Our coaching is biblically-based, and incudes a healthy dose of practical, transparent, and real-life illustrations to help you make your marriage better.
2. How much does premarital coaching cost?
Premarital coaching is $65 per session, and requires the Prepare-Enrichment Assessent (see FAQ 6) and the Making Your Marriage Work course (see FAQ 7).
3. Is premarital coaching for me?
Premarital coaching is for you if you plan to have a successful marriage. Research has shown that the course of the marriage relationship is set within the first 6 to 9 months of marriage. Many couples meet with the officiant once to discuss the wedding, but never talk about the marriage itself. This sets their relationship up for trouble since they can't navigate the difficulties common to every marriage. Couples who learn principles to deal with challenges early in the marriage have a better marriage than those who do not learn these principles.
4. What is the Prepare-Enrich Assessment, and why is it required for premartial coaching?
The Prepare-Enrich Assessment has been used for over 35 years, and has helped 100,000 counselors and clergy to build confidence in working with couples. In addition, it can help you build confidence in your decision to move towards the next step in your relationship. Moreover, it will help you see an unbiased, clearer picture so you can dive deep to work on the important subjects. The assessment is $55.
5. What is the Making Your Marriage Work (MWMY) course, and why is it required for precoaching?
MYMW is our premium course that covers multiple aspects of the marriage relationship. It consists of audio lessons covering the areas that tend to cause the most disruption in marriage. The course is required for coaching because the sessions are built on the lessons in the course. The course is $95.
6. How many coaching sessions are there?
Most couples have anywhere from 4 to 6 sessions. Typically they'll listen to 2-3 lessons in the MYMW course, then will schedule an appointment to discuss the lessons.
7. Do you provide face-to-face coaching?
Due to the pandemic, all coaching is done virtually. This will be our protocol for foreseeable future.
