PREPARE/ENRICH is an online assessment tool we use for dating and engaged couples who want to understand and improve their relationship. By asking key questions in the beginning of the assessment, PREPARE/ENRICH addresses each couple's relationship stage, situation, challenges, philosophical/spiritual orientation, and personalities and tailors the inventory to assess the couple's strengths and the areas of challenge where growth will bring about the greatest benefits. Each partner completes the inventory independently by answering approximately two hundred questions.
Using the personalized assessment at the beginning of the premarital journey will provide you and your partner with a clear view of your relationship. Each partner completes the inventory independently by answering approximately two hundred questions. Once completed the assessment will be reviewed and processed in session. Each couple will receive a copy of the assessment profile and workbook.
