DEFINITION OF A MARRIAGE CARE SUPPORT GROUP

A group of caring couples who meet regularly throughout the year to provide nurture, support and encouragement for one another (as individuals and as couples) in the growth and enrichment of their marriage relationships.              

CRITICAL ASPECTS:

  • Committed
  • Intentional
  • Sharing
  • Ongoing

UNIQUE ASPECTS OF A MARRIAGE CARE SUPPORT GROUP

  • Deals with PREVENTATIVE CARE, as over against CRISIS support.
  • Rather than being bonded by common trauma or suffering, couples are bonded by a mutual desire to strengthen and enrich their marriages.
  • Offers an introductory experience in marriage enrichment as an encouragement for couples to find ways of continually strengthening their marriages.
  • Offers couples an opportunity to gain new friends that could prove to be long lasting.
