Chris and I had our Marriage Preparation class this weekend. It was a little dull and there were a lot of corny worksheets to fill out and discuss together. Although they recognize that the average age of couples is now between 22 and 35 instead of the former 18-24, the class has apparently not been updated to take that into account.
There were about 14 couples in the class, many of whom are getting married in the next several months. I think Chris and I had the furthest out wedding.
It was an interesting class, but mostly just practical stuff and mostly all stuff we've already talked about. The spiritual part of marriage is done in more depth in the next class we have to take, which we're not taking until June 2.
That pretty much took up our whole weekend. This week is starting off on a good foot. I've already gotten a lot of stuff done today, so I am hoping that means it'll be a very productive week.
Tonight we're off to another session of Theology on Tap; the topic is the Papacy.
P.S. How do you like the new look to the blog? How about the cool wedding tracker at the top! Thanks, Shawna!
