Marriage is one of the most significant steps you will ever take in your life.

The commitment you make in marriage will be just as real on the day you are not feeling so good about your partner or yourself.

In the run up to marriage, it is natural to get caught up in the anticipation and hectic planning of the big day.

However, it is important to put some time aside just for you and your partner, to discuss your expectations, concerns and hopes for the life you’ll share together in marriage.

A marriage preparation course at MyMind is a great way to give yourself and your partner the space to do just that.

It’s a time, just for the two of you, to share your thoughts and fears, and to prepare for what lays ahead after you say ‘I Do’, with guidance and support from an experienced psychologist at MyMind.
