Congratulations for making the decision to remarry! Often times we don’t realize how sacry a decision that was. One way to truly guarantee success and happiness with this marriage is to make sure that nothing is left over from your previous marriage.
This is the healthiest way to start.
I will be happy to help you work though the issues that remain and want you to understand that it is quite normal to bring all that in to the next relationship.
You are trying to enter in to this marriage in a brand new way. You are wiser. You have learned from your previous relationship and you have found love again. That is definitely something to be proud of. Life was meant to be shared with someone that loves you. There is no other relationship that can compare to the relationship between a husband and wife.
The next step is to take a catholic Remarriage Class. I have facilitated this class and worked with couples that are seeking to remarry in the church. The remarriage class is extremely helpful in preparing for your marriage and life together.
The Remarriage Class Topic Include:
Study of your Family of Origin
Money Matters & Career Planning
Communication, Conflict, and Forgiveness
Planning the Wedding for our Future Together
Options for Mixed Religion Marriages
Couples who are living together
Rituals of Engagement
Understanding your relationship
Marital Spirituality, and more.
The whole point is to help you to know each other in a deeper, connected way so that you turn to each other throughout life as a source of strength and comfort.
