Random engagement pic, just because I like it!
Last night was our first marriage prep class. It was two hours long, and to be honest I was kind of dreading it! I didn't know what to expect, and I didn't know how much they'd pry into my personal life. Also there's the whole Farmboy's Catholic, and I'm not thing. This was the Catholic marriage class, so I was nervous.
Luckily I had no reason to be! The class had five engaged couples and one lead couple who've been married 25 years. The couples were all pretty quiet, I think none of us really knew what to expect. The lead couple was very sweet and kept the ball rolling fairly well.
We talked about communication, which was really interesting. A lot of the couples talked about different fights and arguments they'd been in, and FB and I just kind of sat there. We honestly have never fought. We've had things that we've disagreed about and disappointments, but we figure it out before either of us gets upset enough to argue or fight. I think part of this is just our nature, we don't really argue with anyone for any reason. Also we're very thoughtful, thinking it over before we're ready to talk about anything.
Anyway, it was a great first session. I'm actually looking forward to the homework we have to do this weekend. The upcoming weeks' topics look a little more difficult, but I guess that'll be good for us. For all you married couples.... What type of marriage prep did y'all go through? Did you love it/hate it?
