Frequently Asked Questions

What can we expect from each pre-marital session?


The initial session will be us getting started by exploring your relationship story, highlighting your strengths, reviewing any pre-marital assessment you completed, and collaborating on future topic areas that we will dive deeper into as we move forward. Each topic area session will focus on one area of your relationship - including discussion, techniques, activity together in session, and possibly homework assigned.




Does this pre-marital program qualify for the Twogether in Texas benefit?


The Plan Beyond the Wedding program qualifies for Twogether in Texas benefits! This means that upon completion of the pre-marital program, each couple (who are residents of Texas) will receive a certificate to present to a Texas county clerk for up to $60 off their marriage license fee and waives the 72-hour waiting period.​
