Joined by Grace, Ave Maria Press’s marriage preparation program, has been approved to be part of the “Twogether in Texas” Healthy Marriage Program initiative.

Texas offers engaged couples a $60 discount on their marriage license if they participate in an approved marriage preparation course or attend premarital relationship counseling or classes.

Offering couples the tools they need for life after their wedding day, Joined by Grace shows how the seven sacraments can help build marriages that are rooted in Christ by teaching couples to accept and be fully present to one another, give themselves completely, and serve and forgive each other.

Published by Ave Maria Press—the publisher of the bestselling Together for Life and a leader in marriage ministry for almost 50 years—written by marriage experts John and Teri Bosio, and produced by the Emmy-winning Spirit Juice Studios, Joined by Grace provides parish leaders, mentor couples, and engaged couples the most comprehensive, innovative, and up-to-date marriage preparation program for Catholic parishes today and the first to emphasize the connection between marriage and the other six sacraments.
