Marriageable is an identity-strengthening process promoting a different dating culture and overall cultural transformation of approaching relationships.
Marriageable focuses on the individual becoming, rather than the individual finding. The goal is explicitly becoming marriageable, not just dating around. Marriageable seeks to be a servant tool for individuals desiring lasting change and inner fortitude leading to transformed lives and over the course of several generations, ultimately leading to transformed societies.
Online dating culture is not working for everyone. Too many people are getting hurt or disappointed in the current dating culture. Our alternative provides a process with a matchmaking opportunity to serve individuals seeking to be strengthened in the process of finding a spouse.
1. Chaos into Peace
No two people are the same. We understand that everyone has unique challenges. We provide a process that allows for self-discovery and resolution. We illustrate what relationships look like with less chaos and more peace.
2. Rite of Passage
It starts with you. We believe everyone needs to experience a rite of passage in their lives. Responsibilities and consequences are vital to one’s growth. We are a mentor based program that allows for individuals, dating and engaged couples to learn from others who have walked in their shoes.
3. Relationship and Personal Responsibility
We believe that individuals need to be responsible for what they say and do. Success takes hard work and determination. We work hard if you work hard.
4. Definition of Self
Acknowledge the past, understand the present and anticipate the future. We help you understand where you have been and where you want to go.
5. Foundation for the Future
Our goal is to be proactive. We strive to give you the foundational tools to build healthy and lasting relationships.
6. Many Problems/One Problem
We facilitate simplicity by addressing one problem at a time. We understand that relationships are complex but we also understand that a step-by-step process is vital towards peace. Simple or complex, one or many, we are here to walk alongside you to solve problems while collectively working towards peace.
We want to help you move into a more marriageable position. Having worked with singles for many years, we understand the pain of desiring to be in a committed relationship and yet not being there. As our promise states: We help you understand where you have been and where you want to go.
As you begin or continue a dating relationship, we want to help you navigate issues as you progress in your dating relationship. We know that dating can be complex and we want to help you facilitate simplicity in the process and move you from chaos to peace.
Engagement can be a pivotal season for couples to do foundational work. This includes examining their own values as compared to the values of their fiance related to communication, money, sex, and their future lives.
Research finds that couples who underwent counseling before their wedding had a 30% higher marital success rate than those who did not.
We love working with engaged couples. From over a decade ago when we would customize each pre-marital session to now, we have discovered useful tools that help couples thrive during engagement. Let us share those with you in this exciting time of your life.
