"We have been together for 5 years and were friends first for about 2 years beforehand. Being friends first allowed us to know each other well before dating and to easily trust and communicate with each other.
We decided to take the Before You Tie the Knot class as we are now preparing to take the next step in our relationship. Although we do feel like we mostly have a great relationship already, there is always so much more we can learn when it comes to communicating and how to understand each other’s needs.
We feel like the class did just that. We learned new ways to communicate and work with our different personalities. We learned how to deal with arguments in a more positive way and how to settle those arguments more quickly. The class was also great in learning to discuss things we wouldn’t have thought to talk about before such as what parenting styles we would like to use in the future. With the tools we have learned in this class we definitely feel like it has strengthened our relationship and has prepared us for a great future together."
