I did Pre Cana for my first marriage and honestly, it was kind of fun meeting other couples. You talk about different topics (the sex talk was lol), but in general it wasn’t a total waste of a day. There was a little dinner at the end of our day too.

I tried to get an ex to do this years ago. Neither of us were Catholic, but I really liked the approach. We ended up doing books instead. In hindsight, I was premature, but really wanted to figure out if we were right for each other. Years later, Fiance and I did preengagement counseling with a marriage and family therapist. I loved it.

We are doing the online course… And I was super excited about it until we actually started. We both feel like we are doing our nephew’s 2nd grade religion homework.  FI went to Catholic school his whole life and I grew up in a very Catholic household.  The online course has you analyzing Bible passages and then a couple critiques you.  We still have 5 lessons so it might get better. We will see.

One of my friends did like one night a week for 6 weeks with another couple and she said it was horrendous.

A coworker did the engaged encounter weekend as did one of my bridesmaids and they both really liked it.
