A pastoral newlywed follow-up program in West Zion Mennonite Church

Trevor J Kiriaka
This project is a pastoral newlywed follow-up program. It seeks to overcome some of the weakness of, and act as an extension of, premarital counseling. The project serves to help newlyweds in their first years of marriage and was based on Gottman and Silver's book Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. There were five sessions and six couples involved. The program was designed to help couples grow in love, assess key relational issues and increase in their appreciation of marital enrichment. The project was successful in attaining the bulk of its objectives, but there is room for improvement.
