  • Marriage Preparation and Relationship Enrichment Workshops


    Marriage PrepAt LSS of Minnesota, we believe in the power of strong, healthy relationships. As you prepare for marriage, we are here to help you and your partner learn the skills for a long, lasting life together. 

    Our marriage preparation workshops are designed for couples planning to be married within the next year and are facilitated by professional behavioral health staff. Throughout the day-long workshop, you will have the opportunity to gain deeper understanding and appreciation for your partner, hear the challenges and excitement that other couples are facing and explore the possibilities of your future together. 

    Workshop topics

    Our team is dedicated to helping you and your partner practice important skills needed for a strong, mutually-satisfying relationship. These skills will be practiced and explored through the following topics:

    • Communication
    • Conflict Management
    • Finances
    • Roles and Expectations of Marriage
    • Sexuality and Intimacy
    • Spirituality
    • Personalities

    These topics will primarily be explored one-on-one with your partner. However, you will also have the opportunity to share your experiences with the group and hear from other couples.

    Getting started

    There are two ways to enroll in one of our marriage preparation workshops – you can sign up online by selecting a workshop below, or you can download a registration form and mail it to us. Please ensure you include legible and current email addresses for both individuals when you register.

    Approximately two weeks prior to your workshop date, you and your partner will each receive an email from Prepare-Enrich to take an assessment. The email will contain customized login information and directions for completing the assessment. You will have the opportunity to review the results at the workshop with the facilitator.
