We just finished our FOCCUS session. We did not get to take home the results, to the disappointment of some of my single friends who wanted to get a look at the questions. πŸ™‚

We went over the test with a couple from the parish. They were very nice and offered advice and insight based on their own relationship.

Fi and I actually discussed most of our answers before the follow up visit from memory, and so there were no major surprises when we the results were revealed. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and how it focused on so many aspects of our relationship.

We never saw or got to go over our FOCCUS results. I am still very curious about them!

We got to keep ours, but I don’t think we were supposed to!  We scored 100% in the sex category (haha), and 80s-90s in everything else, if I remember correctly.

We didn’t get to keep our results either.  We went over them as part of our marriage prep.  Our lowest score (60ish %) was on religion beliefs – very strange since we both were born and raised Catholic!

We didn’t get to keep ours either, which we we’re disappointed about. We did go over most, though; mainly the ones with issues. No real surprises, though, since Fiance and i went over everything after we took the test πŸ™‚

Yup.. we actually received two copies, one for the church and one for us. Our Deacon basically said “well theres not much to go over” when our results came in. We did good πŸ™‚

Oh my, I didn’t realize they actually gave “percentage” scores!!  We were told it was just to give us points to talk about!  FI and I took ours in December, but we are currently in different states, so we won’t go over them until March.  Our priest mentioned casually that “they were all right”… I think (hope) he was just teasing me about being nervous!  I guess the perpetual college student in me wants to make sure I got a good grade πŸ™‚  Do you have to sit and talk with the priest/deacon about the areas where you got lower scores?

We got to keep ours!  Even the areas in which we got “high” percentiles were discussed.  We really liked our marriage prep couple and it was a very good experience for us.

We didn’t to keep ours either! I thought it was so wierd. We were going to go and talk about the results ourselves. Instead we just forgot what the questions were!  Oh well.

Random question. . . I just signed us up for precana in April.  Actually, we get to do the special precana since we’re over 30.  πŸ™‚  Anyways, I’m not as familiar with the FOCCUS test.  Is it required?  Do you do it at your precana class?  After?  Thanks for the info as my church wasn’t too clear on everything.

some churches require it others dont. I wouldnt stress too much about it. They may give it to you after the precana

its simply a test you both take seperately (same questions about family values, morals, finances, goals and so on) they then compare your answers and it is simply used to help whoever is preparing you for marriage (at your Catholic church) guide you and counsel you in any areas that may be needed.
