This Saturday, Adam and I went to Pre-Cana at Saint Tarcissus parish. It was an all-day affair with 41 other engaged couples.
In the morning, we discussed what traits make a marriage successful and how to communicate effectively. In the afternoon, we discussed goal-setting, money, intimacy and children. I enjoyed the discussion of goals because we had never written down a list of individual and shared goals before, but everything else I feel like we'd discussed on our own. I had a hard time with a lot of the discussion because I felt like it was judgmental and focused a lot on traditional, heteronormative gender roles.
Honestly, the best part of the day was our lunch at nearby Superdawg, a Chicago institution.
