Then there is plenty of time to discuss the topic as a couple. There is no group work involved at any stage of the course. Who designed the course? The Marriage Course was started by Nicky and Sila Lee, who are on the staff at Holy Trinity Brompton – the London church that started the Alpha course.  A new updated edition of The Marriage Course is now being run in 28 countries. Nicky and Sila Lee have been married for over 20 years and have four children.   They have spoken to thousands on the subject of marriage and are the co-authors of The Marriage Book which has sold over 52,000 copies since it was published in 2000. They run The Marriage Course three times a year at Holy Trinity Brompton with around 100 couples on each course.
Fantastic Atmosphere – each evening starts at 7 p.m. with a candlelit dinner at your own romantic table for two,  giving you an opportunity to spend time together as a couple.   Many couples say it’s like having a special date every week. Practical Talks – that are informative and fun, played on DVD.  They include filmed clips of couples sharing their own experiences, and street interviews from around the world. Coffee and private discussion time as a couple. You’ll be given topics to discuss (sometimes with the help of a written exercise).   Music is played so you can’t hear couples near you, and they can’t hear you! No group work, so relax – you won’t have to share anything about your relationship with anyone else. Homework – at the end of each session you will be given some homework to do together.   This will help you to build on what you have learnt, and give you the opportunity to apply it to your relationship.  Don’t worry – it won’t be marked!   It isn’t looked at by anyone else and is just for your own benefit.

Are you married or in a long-term cohabiting relationship? Have you been together for over a year? Would you like your relationship to be the best it can be? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions then this course is for you. The Marriage Course is for any couple who wants to work together at and invest in their relationship.  It doesn’t matter if you’ve been together for one year or 61 years. If you have a strong marriage this course will help you make it even better and will reinforce your good habits. If on the other hand your marriage is in difficulty, the course will help provide you with very practical tools to help you work through the issues. Some couples who are separated have used the course as a way of trying to get back together. While The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles, it is designed for couples with or without a Christian faith. Many couples who are not churchgoers have commented that the Christian content was presented in a way that did not make them uncomfortable at all.
