Marriage Prep in Special Circumstances

The issues facing couples that are entering marriage later in life are different or may be more complicated than those who marry younger. The Diocese of Fargo recognizes this and therefore, we offer a marriage preparation program geared towards couples in special circumstances. Special circumstances can include those that are divorced, have lived together for a time, have been married in a civil marriage, bringing children into the marriage, or other unique situations. The “Marriage Preparation in Special Circumstances Seminar” offers couples an opportunity to examine their relationship more in depth and look more specifically at different themes.
