We all know the old adage “happy wife, happy life”, a frequent toast at weddings. The Family Life Unit of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish however took a different spin to this. Together with the Couples for Christ Ministry, a Young Couples Programme, ‘Happy Spouse, Happy House’, was started with the view of building a foundation for lasting marriage.
The first session, held on June 10, started with a lively shoe game which allowed the couples to think hard on what they knew about their spouse and themselves. The session continued with a mini talk which gave a synopsis of what the Young Couples Programme would entail and the couples present were invited to share their thoughts on this new venture.
Some couples were excited at having this avenue and looked forward to the growth in our parish. For others, it was a time to spend together without any distractions.
