Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
Gateway whole-heartedly believes in marriage, and we want to partner with you to ensure your marriage starts off on the right foot. Many studies claim that good premarital counseling can reduce the risk of divorce by as much as 30%. Why not make this small investment that is likely to pay off for the duration of your marriage?
Gateway has created an incredible premarital counseling experience called Soulmates. It’s a 8-week interactive experience where couples explore the unique characteristics of their relationship with a marriage mentor while being instructed by experienced marriage communicators.
We truly believe that Soulmates offers the best pre-marital experience for couples, so we have also made it the most affordable option for couples seeking marriage at Gateway. It’s offered twice per year, once in the fall and once in the new year.
Cost is $40 per couple and includes a comprehensive relationship assessment as well as the option to apply for the Texas marriage license. Childcare is available (0-12 years old). Any couple who is interested in having a Gateway pastor officiate their wedding must go through SoulMates.
