Dr. Richard P. Johnson, Ph.D., PCSG will present “A Marriage Prep (and Enrichment) Program for Middle-Age and Older Couples”.
1. Are middle-aged and older couples different from younger ones? Do they have different marriage prep needs?
2. How can we best prepare middle-aged and older couples for the sacrament of marriage?
3. Do marriage enrichment programs for middle-aged and older couples need to be different?
Dr. Johnson describes an entirely new perspective of how we can successfully prepare middle-aged and older couples for marriage. He begins with a clear outline of how maturing couples use their individual personalities that they bring into the relationship in a more differentiated way than younger couples do. He identifies the six marriage “essentials” for a happy, healthy & holy marriage for maturing adults, as well as what he calls the marriage “eroders” and “evaporators” of marriage solidarity. He concludes with ways marriage can be elevated onto a spiritual plane.
