Pre-Marriage Course

The Good Beginnings Pre-Marriage Program

The “Good Beginnings” pre-marriage program developed by Benevolence Australia in partnership with Sir Zelman Cowen Centre and Victoria University is designed to help Muslim couples build strong foundations for their future together. It is perfect for engaged or newlywed couples who are embarking on the journey of marriage. The course integrates prophetic teachings, evidence-based theory and experiences of real-life couples to explore a holistic and faith-based approach to marriage.
It draws upon the Prepare-Enrich Program, the #1 pre-marital assessment tool used globally for over 35 years. The first part of Prepare-Enrich includes an online assessment that identifies strength and growth areas as a couple. Each couple will then receive a unique "couple report" that will be explored and used to guide exercises and discussion points during 3-4 feedback sessions with a trained marriage mentor.

Topics include:

Throughout the course, you will gain key skills and knowledge on a range of important relationship topics.

  • The Prophetic Model of Marriage

  • Knowing your Strengths as a Couple

  • Communication Styles

  • Stress & Conflict Management

  • Understanding Each Other and Your Families
