Are You Engaged? Start Strengthening Your Marriage Before The Big Day With the Utah Marriage Commission

Being engaged is a fun and exciting time for a couple, and it often passes far too quickly! Whether you’re engaged for a few months or a year, preparing for your marriage is something you should do, regardless of your engagement period. You’ll want to know things about your potential spouse ahead of time and before you get to the big conversations: will we both work? Will one person stay home with kids? Will we even have kids? How many kids do each of us want? What’s our budgeting look like? How will we resolved conflict and indecision? Who’s side of the family will we see for holidays?

These are the questions that couples should have an answer for, or at least, talked about, before they solidify their marriage. Marrying the love of your life is a beautiful endeavor but it’s also a hard, lifelong journey! Our resources are meant to help couples work through their thoughts, considerations, and get it all on paper. Couples who do marriage prep value their marriage even before it starts – and have better success rates.
