Why is Marriage Preparation Needed?
Many dioceses in the United States and abroad require couples to undergo courses for marriage preparation. Holy Matrimony is a life-long commitment and a Sacrament. Because it is a Sacrament, it actual confers God's grace on those who are married. For that reason and because it is irrevocable, Catholic couples must fully be prepared to enter into the marital union.
