“L’alleanza d’amore tra l’uomo e la donna, alleanza per la vita, non si improvvisa, non si fa da un giorno all’altro. Non c’è il matrimonio express: bisogna lavorare sull’amore, bisogna camminare. L’alleanza dell’amore dell’uomo e della donna si impara e si affina. Mi permetto di dire che è un’alleanza artigianale. Fare di due vite una vita sola, è anche quasi un miracolo, un miracolo della libertà e del cuore, affidato alla fede.”
Papa Francisco

Pope Francis on the importance of a marriage course: 

-The pope urged couples not to rush into marriage. Maturation in love before marriage is a slow process, in which none of the steps should be skipped, Pope Francis told people at his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square.
"The covenant of love between a man and a woman, a covenant for life, cannot be improvised; it cannot be done from one day to the next," he said.
- There is no such thing as "an express marriage," he added.
The church, he said, offers marriage preparation courses as an expression of its care for couples. In his Italian catechesis, the pope noted that many couples come to marriage preparation courses reluctantly. But they are grateful afterward for the opportunity to reflect on their relationship in profound ways because while many have been together for a long time, and even live together, "they really do not know each other," he said.
