TOUCH Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP) aims to help couples lay the foundation for their marriage. Conducted by a husband-and-wife-team in the homes of the instructors or in a training centre.

Our Programme will cover these topics:

  • Family of origin

This workshop utilizes the PREPARE/ENRICH Inventory which encompasses a customized couple assessment to be completed online prior to the workshop. The questionnaires are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital or married relationship. A trained facilitator will provide feedback and help you understand and discuss the results. You will also learn some tips on how to improve your relationship skills.

Fees: S$380/- per couple, inclusive of 7% GST ($70 rebate* after completion of programme).

Feedback from past participants

“Thank you so much for your great delivery of the content and facilitation in the marriage preparation course. I found the first day of the course helped me raise my self-awareness and the second day of the course that touched on forgiveness was a means of catharsis for me through the sharing by other participants. I will highly recommend this course to my friends who are getting married.”
