Programme Writeup Alive Marriage Preparation Programme provides both group learning as well as opportunity for you as a couple to explore with a trained professional and issues that you may find important to talk about.
Group sessions will normally involve the facilitator sharing important insights on a marriage related topic and offering you opportunities to discuss various concerns. In the process you will fill up simple inventories, write about your preferences and discuss these with your partner.
There will be ample space in the meeting rooms for you to discuss matters with your partner and not worry that others will be hearing you.
While in groups, some couples may share their own thoughts and opinions. No one will be forced to share their personal stories if they do not want to do so.
Towards the end of the group classes, you will be able to work out dates for a couple session with a trained professional. This session will give you a chance to review your psychological profile and to better understand each other. You will also have the opportunity to crystallise your learning from the group sessions and raise possible concerns you have about marriage.

Programme Writeup “Fighting for Your Marriage” is based on the “Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Programme” (PREP®). The PREP® programme is a sophisticated research-based marriage enrichment programme with proven results of low rates of premarital break-up and post marital divorce. The programme is based on more than 40 years of continual on-going research on marital success and distress.
The PREP® programme is founded by Dr Howard Markman and Dr Scott Stanley from the University of Denver, USA. The PREP® programme is internationally renowned and it has been featured in the New York Times and the founders have been interviewed on 20/20, 48 Hours, CNN, The Oprah Show, Good Morning America and The Today Show. Print media has included coverage in publications such as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Psychology Today, The San Francisco Chronicle, Men's Health, to name a few.
The researchers have isolated several risk factors which can determine whether a marriage will be successful or not. Through interactive activities and discussions conducted by PREP® trained counsellors, participants will discover the working tools for a successful marriage.

Programme Writeup 1) Marriage Builders
Wedding days are celebrated feasts that commemorate the first day of a marriage. It is the start of a journey of a lifetime. Filled with ups and downs, peppered with the pressures and life and challenges of daily living, the big questions is: how does one stay committed to another “till death do us part”? There are no hard and fast answers to this question. A few key elements in marriage is being prepared, learning how to manage expectations and constantly seeking to strengthen your relationship.
2) Why Connect2?
Laying the foundations of a lifelong marriage goes beyond just preparing for a dream wedding. Knowing what to expect after you say, ""I do"" and learning how to handle 'for better or for worse' can lead to a lifetime of love and romance. Connect2 is a marriage preparation program that aims to help couples address issues that all newlyweds face, strengthen their marriage in the early years and learn how to really love each other- for life!

Programme Writeup We believe that marriage is not the end of a loving relationship. Our programme serves as an avenue for couples to prepare ahead the possible areas that may cause stress to their loving relationship and how minor things like personal likings, habits, and suspicious thoughts may cause a strong relationship to fall apart.
Our programme intends to address two main issues: know one-self and learning how to care for our partners in the way it is wanted by them.

Programme Writeup It is not about how many “C”s you have in life, but how the “C”s in your marriage can impact your life. “One, Two, Three or Six?” takes couples from the fundamentals of “What is marriage, love and commitment?” to learning critical communication and conflict management skills to maintain the emotional bonds between them and stay committed in their marriage. At the same time, couples are invited to deal with common marriage issues like finance, relating to in-laws, sex and family planning, to help build a strong foundation for a lasting marriage that may stay strong through the seasons.
