Marriage Preparation

We in the Marriage Council advise one-to-one preparation.


The 3 hour session is taken by a trained counsellor and covers areas such as expectations, communication, sexuality, conflict resolution and parenting. It is intended to complement the preparation given by your local Rector and is also suitable for couples marrying for the second time.


There is a fee of €200 for the marriage preparation course from 2016. Hopefully you agree that's a good investment at the start of married life.
