Marriage Preparation

aLife offers specially tailored programmes to help couples build a good foundation in their marriages as well as prepare couples for real life

How does it work?

Couples can choose their sessions to be conducted individually or in a cosy group setting. Under the guidance of experienced professional trainers, couples are given personal time to discuss practical issues and be provided with tools to navigate potential marital conflicts, particularly those that tend to occur in the early marital years.
