Marriage Preparation for Singles

What are you thinking about?

Is marriage a future option for you? Do you believe long term commitment is relevant today? What makes lasting relationships so challenging?

Single Adults face a unique challenge in our culture. Many seriously desire to be married and want to make sound choices. Making use of the curriculum “How to Avoid Marrying a Jerk”, this program will equip single adults with some skills to make a good long term relational decision.

What's This All About?

Healthy Relationships for Single Adults is the portion of the TWOgether Pittsburgh initiative that will build the skills of the relationship minded single. The program is designed to build relationships skills and knowledge to allow for healthy relationship choices.

Is It for Me?

Any individual who is not yet married can benefit from this highly interactive class built on John Van Epp's "How to Avoid Falling for a Jerk" curriculum. Even those who are in serious dating relationships can build their skills and see the strengths and weaknesses of their current relationship.

What should I expect?

The program is delivered in a highly interactive classroom setting with a group of like-minded individuals. This research-based curriculum focuses in on such vital topics as: What does it mean to "get to know" someone? What is the difference between trusting someone and relying on them? As well as many other topics that help sort through the confusing landscape of the "dating scene".

Program Formats

At TWOgether Pittsburgh we understand that you may have time constraints, so we've created different program formats to fit your needs. However, we highly recommend taking a multi-week class to benefit the most from this program.

3-Hour Intensive

You will cover a substantial portion of our relationship curriculum in a condensed format during one power packed evening of interactive learning.

6-Hour Intensive

Our full program will be rolled out and shared with you on a Saturday. Group discussions and games will provide personal insights and build your relational skills.

Weekend Intensive

You will meet with other couples on a Friday evening followed by a Saturday session. You will be asked to go on 3 "dates" to practice the skills you learned in the group sessions.


You will meet with other couples for six educational sessions comprised of skill-building activities, discussion, and reflection.
