We did ours at the end of April and I have to say, it wasn’t bad at all.  In the Chicago archdiocese, you do a Saturday session that runs from about 9-4:30 with a break for lunch.  We actually were done by about 3-3:30.  There was one married couple running the session and 43 engaged couples.  We all sat at tables of 8.  We followed along in a book that had various exercises.  We’d talk about the exercise and then you’d break to do your own writing and then come back to your fiance to talk about what you wrote.  The main thing we talked about was communication and finances. Everything else was kind of rushed through (intimacy, NFP, etc) with resources given where you could get further info.  I actually really liked the class as it confirmed a lot of what we’ve already talked about and let us know what things we need to spend more time on.

ours was a saturday 9-12 and had about 5 other couples there. VERY relaxed. We had a few handouts to do and shared a few things, not as bad as I thought, quick and painless.
