This premarital course is a non-denominational course that will provide you with the information and tools you need to create a healthy foundation on which to begin your marriage. At your own pace and from your own home, you and your partner can address the key topics that will help you create a fulfilling and lasting marriage.
Is it possible to divorce-proof your marriage before it even begins?
While no one can offer you a 100% guarantee, the engagement is a vulnerable time when you and your partner have an opportunity either to lay a healthy foundation or create a fault line that could grow and erupt years down the road. When each of you address your own transition from single to wife or husband and learn how to best support your partner’s transition, you’ll be legions ahead of most couples who only focus on the “hot topics” taught in most premarital courses.
When Sheryl announced she was releasing a Premarital Course, I jumped at the chance to register, despite already being six months married. I suffered terrible anxiety during my engagement but Sheryl’s Relationship Anxiety Course pulled me through that anxiety and enabled me to take the leap into marriage with my wonderful husband. I just cannot get enough of Sheryl’s work!
“The best thing about the course for our marriage has been the exercises that focus on what it takes to make a marriage work. The course also helped reassure us both that our reality of marriage is normal and that it doesn’t have to be filled with intense, romantic love all day, every day and that it’s ok to have conflict!
“I would recommend this course to all couples, whether committed, engaged or even married. I’m sure that my husband and I will both refer to the materials at various times throughout our future together.

We have always known that marriages take work but the material in the Premarital Course has been a catalyst for discussions about how we see our marriage working. This has been such a good thing for our communication as a couple. We are both on the same page and are heading towards our wedding with our eyes wide open. Thank you, Sheryl, for your fantastic work. I highly recommend this for all couples who wish to dispel the myths and stereotypes of what an engagement and marriage ‘should’ be like.
How is this course different from other premarital courses?
While most courses focus on typical premarital issues like learning communication skills and discussing core values, money, and sex, they fail to address one of the key topics that could make or break a marriage years down the road: addressing expectations. When couples find themselves in counseling years into the marriage, they often report that the two breaking points – or times when resentments started to build – were getting married and becoming parents. So while this course also addresses the traditional topics, including a fantastic video interview with a premarital expert on conflict resolution, I take it several steps further to offer you the tools you need to fortify your marriage.
When You Sign Up For The Program, You Will Receive:
The course includes three lessons, complete with videos, MP3s, and articles, plus a bonus lesson:
Lesson One: The Conscious Bride where you’ll learn about your transition into marriage and managing your engagement/marriage anxiety. (If you’re struggling with engagement anxiety please consider the Break Free From Relationship Anxiety Course.)
Lesson Two: The Conscious Groom where you’ll learn how to address your doubts and fears about marriage – what we call “cold feet” in this culture – consider alternatives to the common bachelor party, and understand how to support your partner if she’s experiencing engagement anxiety.
Lesson Three: The Conscious Couple where you’ll receive a premarital counseling course “in a bottle” so together you can explore what marriage means today, discuss core values, expectations, money, sex and attraction, discover your love languages, and learn effective tools for conflict resolution.
Plus a bonus lesson for the mother and father of the bride and groom to help them attend to the uncomfortable feelings triggered by their child’s transition into marriage. A transition for a child is a transition for parents as well!
