How would you like to save $60 on your Tennessee marriage license
and at the same time make a
huge investment in the future of your marriage?
   Introducing the At-Home Marriage Preparation Course where you can do BOTH!. 

A marriage license in Tennessee now costs $98.50 (most counties). UNLESS . . . you have a marriage preparation course completion certificate (official government form) signed by a certified provider. With a certificate the license is $60 less.

Smoky Mountain Wedding at home marriage prep courseOver a year ago, Tennessee added a sixty-dollar tax to the marriage license to encourage couples to get some kind of premarital preparation. We do need to do something in Tennessee. We have the second highest divorce rate in the country.

But how many people do you suppose will go pay a professional counselor $100-$150 an hour for four hours to save $60? Not everyone has a church home either. Many just don't know any minister well enough to feel comfortable going to see them. These are some of the reasons so many couples in Tennessee (and more & more all over the country) are thrilled to hear about the At-Home Marriage Preparation Course.

"It gave us an opportunity to evaluate ourselves as a couple - not as individuals - and helped us focus on what it will take for us to continue to have a successful friendship and partnership, as well as cultivate a successful marriage."

"It gave us the chance to get some big issues out in the open. It really allowed us in the end to be more confident in our decision to get married."

"We have only good things to say about this course! I feel we were able to be completely honest with each other, something that would not have happened in a counselor's office."

Here's what's in the marriage preparation course:


Getting ready for marriage should be fun! You can pick from several fun activities to learn about each other & marriage. How does a field trip to the mall sound? What about watching a movie? Learn how to grow your marriage by having fun. These learning-through-fun skills will continue to help you over the years.

THE 12 KEY RELATIONSHIP AREAS:Smoky Mountain Wedding at home marriage prep course

Are you sure you've talked about all twelve of these areas? Do you know what your strengths are as a couple? Your growth needs? Wouldn't it be interesting to find out if your partner had the same answers as you?


Do you really know what your partner wants? Do they really understand what's most important to you? This is your big chance to say it outright.


Couples tell me they really enjoy doing this exercise.

AND MORE . . .

Family of origin questions; communication & conflict resolution principles; resources for stepfamilies; and some passages for those looking for direction from scriptures.

Note: This course is based on Ralph Griggs masters & doctorial work in counseling, his 28 years of ministerial experiences in working with couples, and his 27 years of marriage. Ralph also conducts marriage training courses and is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.

I really do want couples to use this marriage preparation course.

Smoky Mountain Wedding at home marriage prep courseAs mentioned earlier, Tennessee has a divorce problem.

According to the last U.S. Census Report, there are 33,000 divorces in Tennessee every year. That's enough people to fill the stadium where the Tennessee Titans play.

Why the high divorce rate? For one thing, too many couples spend far more time planning their wedding & honeymoon than they do their marriage. It boggles the mind. After all, a wedding is a day; a marriage is for a lifetime.

Some think they don't have time for marriage preparation, or it's going to be a hassle. How about the time and hassle of running to a lawyer filling out separation papers?!

You don't have to choose between having a great wedding and having a great marriage. You can have both.

Think how much better things can be with a little effort on the front end. You'll get a heads-up to your relationship's tricky issues & have some compromises already worked out. You'll know that your mate cares enough about the relationship to put some effort into it. You'll begin your marriage with more realistic expectations.Smoky Mountain Wedding at home marriage prep course
