Prepare/Enrich – Both a Pre-marriage or Marriage Inventory

Prepare/Enrich is a leading relationship inventory and skill-building program used nationally and internationally.  It is built on a solid research foundation and significantly improves a couple’s relationship. Prepare/Enrich is custom tailored to a couple’s relationship and provides couple exercises to build their relationship skills.

Prepare/Enrich is administered at the parish by facilitators trained to use the instrument.

For Marriage Preparation:

When you meet with the priest at your parish to plan your wedding, those that use Prepare/Enrich as part of their marriage preparation will explain how the on-line inventory is administered and they will facilitate the discussion for you and your fiancé once the instrument is completed. 

For Marriage Support/Enrichment:

The Prepare/Enrich Inventory can offered married couples a wealth of knowledge about their relationship. It can assist a couple in learning more about each other and help them move forward together. It is still administered at the parish with a facilitated discussion, so contact your parish or Family Ministry Office for more information.

The Prepare/Enrich Inventory is not a test and is not used to predict marital success or failure. Rather, it is a tool used to help couples identify, discuss and work through important relationship issues before they get married.

Although the Prepare/Enrich Inventory is used by many parishes in the Hamilton Diocese, it is not primarily a teaching or counseling tool. Rather, it is a discussion instrument designed to optimize the marriage preparation process, or the couple marriage relationship. By providing comprehensive content and tailoring discussion to important topics that best serve an individual couple, the Prepare/Enrich Inventory is an excellent choice when preparing or living out the vocation of marriage.

The Prepare/Enrich Couple Report results from collating of the couple’s Inventory responses. It offers a map of specific issues that may need time and attention, affirmation or problem solving, along with offering a starting place for discussion.

The Prepare/Enrich Inventory is a researched-based assessment tool designed to provide engaged couples with a personalized profile of what is good and perhaps what needs further discussion in the couple’s relationship.
