We are a sponsor couple at our parish and are going to start working with a new couple in a couple of weeks.
She is Methodist; he Catholic. As we have not yet met, I do not know how strongly each holds his faith.
What I do know is that the text we use, *For Better & For Ever, *is at best, woefully inadequate.
Can anyone suggest a better program, or if you were preparing a couple for marriage, what would you give them as reading material, esp. considering the conflicts in a mixed marriage?
I am thinking about Humane Vitae to start with, but maybe with a commentary. Does anyone know of one.
I also like *Good News about Sex and Marriage *(West). I want these people (they are in late 20’s, so not kids) to know something about the beauty of Catholic teaching on marriage, and not just sex.
Thanks for the help!
