Lucy & Zach

The marriage prep course was a great way for us to sit down and connect amidst the chaos and busyness of wedding planning. It included many thought-provoking questions which we may not have discussed had it not been for this course. Thank you for preparing such a thorough course to get us ready for our future! We now feel more prepared to embark on a lifetime together, and are looking forward to more deep discussions like these. - Lucy & Zach

Bill & Devon

I expected to tackle some difficult issues and learn more about how to resolve conflicts, but what I didn’t expect was to fall even more in love by going through this process over the past couple of months. It has been so important for us to have these conversations, especially as we’ve been struggling to plan our wedding during the pandemic. - Bill & Devon

Carmelle & Tristan

This has been a wonderful experience! We liked the self-paced nature of the course and being able to come back and have deep discussions. I will no doubt recommend this course to any and everyone that asks for premarital counseling. - Tristan and Carmelle

Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson, Author of Online Marriage PreparationMeet Rev. Frank

Since my early retirement as a pastor, I have met in person with more than 200 couples. It is now my privilege to offer to you the same course, online and in the privacy of your own home.

It’s an innovative, enjoyable and thorough approach to premarital coaching that couples have raved about.

After you choose which of the three courses fits you best, I will guide you, step-by-step, as you engage in the ten guided conversations.

I wish you a strong and lifelong marriage!

Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson

You might be wondering…

Does my state offer a discount?

More and more states and jurisdictions offer a discount program and some waive the 3 day waiting period. Please check with the state where your wedding will take place. Check out these pages for details on the Twogether In Texas and Minnesota Premarital Education programs. Each county in Florida requires a 4 hour preparation and offers a discount as well as waiving the 3 day waiting period. Also, check out marriage license discount programs in  Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.

Do your courses qualify for the Twogether in Texas program?

Yes, all of our online marriage preparation courses are certified by the Twogether in Texas program, so you can choose the one that is a good fit for you as a couple. After completing the 8-hour, self-paced course, simply send us your completed work, and within an hour, we will email you an electronic copy of the Twogether in Texas statement of completion. Take the statement to the marriage license bureau and receive your $60 discount and have the 72-hour waiting period waived.

How long does it take to complete the course?

Your timeline is flexible and completely up to you! The course can be completed in one long day if that’s what you decide to do, but if you have time, it’s best to stretch the experience over days or weeks. In that case, plan to create a timeline for one or two “conversation dates” per week. Some couples decide to devote a weekend to settle into some long, enjoyable conversations.

How do we access the Spanish version of the course?

After purchasing the course, we will immediately send you an email with a link to download the course instructions. This document will provide you with links to both the English and Spanish version that you can choose from. This works well for couples that have different primary languages as well.

Are your courses LBGTQ friendly?

Two of our courses are. When you choose the Basic eCourse or Christian eCourse, you’ll find that it has been written to accommodate all engaged couples everywhere, regardless of  gender or sexual orientation. The Catholic eCourse represents the Roman Catholic Church’s stance on marriage.

What if we have a question while completing the course?

Rev. Frank is available to answer any questions you may have as you are completing the course with your fiancé. Just email him at talkpoints@aol.com, and he’ll reply as quickly as possible!

How and when do we receive a completion statement?

Before they give you the discount on your marriage license or waive the 3 day waiting period, some states will need evidence from the premarital education provider stating that you have completed the course . Many churches and officiants will also require a similar statement. In order to receive your statement of completion, simply email electronic copies of the conversations you have done to talkpoints@aol.com, and Rev. Frank will send you a statement you can submit to the license bureau and/or church. Texas requires 8 hours for the discount; Minnesota requires 12 hours; Florida requires only 4 hours. As soon as you have spent the required time with the course, send Rev. Frank the work you have done, and he will respond with a completion statement

Before We Say “I Do!”

The “Yes!” of an engagement marks an exciting and life-changing milestone in any couple’s life. Congratulations on taking the first step toward entering the world of wedding planning and marriage. Especially during this time of COVID-19, planning a wedding can be a stressful and overwhelming time, but also, a great time to focus on each other as your love deepens.

Couples who invest time in a marriage preparation course from a professional, church or organization can expect to grow closer and be more prepared for marriage when they say “I do!” and begin the long and loving journey as husband and wife.

Although your decision to be engaged will always be one of the most memorable milestones of your life as a couple, your engagement does not necessarily mean that from here to eternity you will live happily ever after. You are very wise to spend time, not just on wedding planning, but also on planning for marriage by focusing on your relationship and deepening the love you already have for each other.

In a world where marriage separations and divorce are common, newlyweds face increasingly difficult odds. Expert marriage preparation with the guidance of a professional is advisable for any couple planning to be married.

Preparing for marriage and setting your sights on a future of happiness and good communication with the help of one of the Online Marriage Preparation courses will give you the tools you will need for a long and happy life of commitment.

The months leading up to your wedding day will be the perfect time to solidify the foundation you have already built for your marriage partnership. The time between now and then need not be only for planning wedding showers, deciding who you will invite to your wedding, making all the wedding arrangements and planning your honeymoon, but also, and more importantly, a time to focus on what matters the most – the life you want to build together.

Congratulations!

– Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson
