Marriage Mentoring

Family Frameworks offers Marriage Mentoring because we believe its important to have a strong couple that you can confide in and grow with during your first year of marriage.

Engaged couples are partnered with married couples that have been trained in the Start Smart program from Live the Life. We offer you the opportunity to learn from couples that have been through the hard stuff and made it through. Sessions are scheduled on your time and in the locations that you are most comfortable meeting. Available in spiritual and secular formats.

Start Smart

START SMART is a good foundation BEFORE marriage can help make marriages last. Our premarital training course teaches specific skills that seriously dating or engaged couples will need to prepare them to have a healthy marriage down the road.  This involves a compatibility test that both couples take then we will assign you a coaching couple to work with you.  This does qualify for the premarital counseling discount.  Contact us to begin your inventory. The inventory costs $25.  You will print out the workbook and we will get back with you and set up sessions with a coach picked just for you.
