Dating & Engaged


You’re engaged; congratulations! What a joyful and exciting time in the life of a couple, preparing to say “Yes” to each other forever before God in marriage. During your time of dating, you probably had many heart to heart conversations about many things. Now that you’ve taken a definitive step toward becoming husband and wife in the sacrament of marriage, it’s important to revisit, or maybe visit for the first time, topics that will impact your lives together. The Must Have Conversations list can be a good place to start.
