We learned how to handle fight better. We were able to discuss topic that sometimes never comes out on normal situations. Before the discovery weekend fight and communication is sometimes uncertain but after we confident we can communicate better before, during and after arguments, I would recommend it because it will set up a better foundation needed to have a great married life.
The weekend turned out to be unexpected, in a good way for me. I entered the DW because it was a requirement, but I left in awe at what God has through this seminar. I know my fiancé now more than ever, and ever, and I love him more than before. I encourage every couple to join our DW before getting married confirm whether it is truly the right decision to get married, not only because they wanted, but because it is the right thing to do.

Discovery weekend helped me understand my partner better. We were able to iron-out issues and settle deeply buried issues that we would usually not bother with it. Thank you to DW for letting me love my partner deeper and more meaningful.
DW is a great experience for a couple! This helps us to grow and be more mature in our relationship. This is really. The best start or first step before getting married!
Love is a choice, not a feeling. Marriage is what you can offer, not what you can get out of it. We got to open up to each other more. It’s reaffirming that we accept who we are and we’re willing to spend to rest of our lives with each other… Dialogues. Before, not too open argrumentative. Now, ablevto listen more;more open.It’s a structured way of preparing for marriage.Very helpful!
I will strongly recommend discovery weekend because it is a big help to couples eye opener.
Confidence and dialogue, three stages of love, morality and sexuality and marriage as a sacrament. Confirms our decision to get married. Sharing and dialogue with my partner, sacrament of reconciliation as a couple, Holy Mass and serving me another with the body and blood of Christ. Before- we are good as a couple, After- We became better as a couple. Because it will definitely bless them as an individual and as a couple regardless of the state of their relationships.
My biggest takeaways is that the DW Weekend has reaffirmed our love for each other. It is also good to know that my partner and I share the same feelings and altitude towards the various topics covered during the DW Weekend. It helped me by covering certain topics that are don’t necessarily discus in our day to day lives. We would definitely recommend the DW Weekend because it prepares couples to confront issues about their relationship.
We were able to confirm that we already covered all the bases before we get married. We were able to establish a deeper connection in confirming our compatibility in terms of our values (core). Yes, highly recommended to couples who are seriously thinking of marriage.
God should always be present in all phases of your life. Your marriage will succeed if you trust and surrender in God. Opened our eyes to the realities behind the issues were facing: Allowed us to discuss comprehensive topics to prep us in marriage. Dialogue/Reflection / hearing sorties of other couples. Before DW: Slightly anxious and uncertain. After DW: peace of mind, more prayerful. Yes I would recommend DW to all couples in a relationship, engaged/ thinking about getting married. It was an eye-opening experience filled with self and relationship discoveries and meaningful conversations.
Dialogue is very important, it needs to be constant. As a couple it was refreshing for us to be able to dialogue about our issues openly. Before: I was hesitate to attend, but it turned out to be a good experience to learn from. DW helps set things into perspective, I think it is a good way to take a step back and get an overview.
Knowing how to listen to your partner. It helped us to become more open to each other. I like the group sharing. Refreshing. It will help you grow as a person and as a Christian.
For marriage to work, you need to have a complete understanding of yourself, your partner and God’s importance in your relationship. The weekend helped us to more open with each other in all aspect to avoid conflicts. It made us more eq uipped for our upcoming marriage. I would recommend the Discovery Weekend to engaged / discerning couples for marriage to guide them in their journey and future plans.
Communication / Dialogue is the key to a healthy relationship. With God at the center, communicating with one another will help grow your relationship. I learned a lot about my partner. Things about her that are ESSENTIAL and things that I thought I knew already but were still revealed to me during the weekend. The dialogue with my partner every after a topic really helped me get to know her more. Thought I already know a lot about her. But after the weekend, learned really amazing things about her and our relationship. I will recommend DW because it is the PERFECT AVENUE to discuss important things that a couple should discuss before getting married.
The weekend exceeded all my expectations on what this weekend would be. As a couple, we were fairly certain that we were meant to be together. After the Discovery Weekend, strengthened and validated our belief that we were meant to be together forever. This weekend allowed us to talk about important aspects of our lives that we could not talk about in our normal everyday lives. And as I’ve said before we were sure about each other after the DW we were a brilliant to infinity without sure that we are meant to be together. I will definitely recommend this weekend to my friends and family who will be getting married.
The DW helps you and your partner assess if you’re ready to take the next step in your relationship. Personally, the weekend helped us open up completely to each other (especially with regards to hard/serious topics) and reaffirm our decision to get married. The highlight for me was each of the couple sharing / dialogue because it made us see and reflect upon the love we have for each other. I didn’t have any expectation for the weekend, honestly but it definitely was helpful and I would totally recommend it to anyone thinking of tying the knot.
DW helps couples discover the essential ingredients for a healthy and spiritual marriage. DW gave an avenue for us to truly talk, communicate, and discover each other in the relationship. I would recommend it to couples planning to get married because it threshes out the issues to be solved and builds on the foundation as a couple.
The one-on-one consultations with partner gave opportunities for improving our communication and foremost topics discussions to be reviewed. Its strengthened our bond and gave us several areas to improve upon.
I become more closer to God and appreciate my partner. The dialogue improved our communication as a couple. The group sharing activity. I am more comfortable talking to my fiancé. To bring positive impact to people.
The sessions confirmed that we are both ripe for marriage, that we’re ready for the next adventure. And DW gave us more tools to face the challenges ahead. Biggest takeaway was choosing my partner everyday, praying for him, choosing to love him despite whatever happens to us.
DW made us more prepared to enter the next chapter of our lives because we had been more open to each other. T mad us closer and more receptive and understanding. We had the best dialogue in 2 years. Our relationship was affirmed by DW. I hope DW will be more accessible to the general public.
“The relationship on your partner become from deep to deeper”.
My biggest takeaway is that the DW weekend has reaffirmed our love for each other.

DW was a big help in understanding my partner and pointing our problem areas and solutions. It is highly recommend to be taken by couples who all considering marriage in the future! Really helped me and my partner.
The biggest takes away is to HAVE to let go of my fear of being intimate with my partner with my thoughts and feeling. By making use face our trouble and issues lead-on, together and in a calm and neutral environment. When we let go and finally understood each other. We get back to where we started and why we started this relationship. We were a bit estranged and confused about how we were felling about the relationship. After the weekend, its like the smoke has cleared. I would definitely recommend DW to any couple old or new to prepare or to improve their knowledge about love, marriage and of course GOD.
The couple sharing from Bro. Mike & Sis Tintin and Tessa & PJ. They were very powerful and inspiring especially for me. My family has been in and out of the hospital with both my brother and father undergone hemodialysis. I am also a new college instructor and I honor the passion of Tessa and PJ in using their profession to bless others. As a couple, our communication is now more open. I feel very closer to Pepe. Highlights would be the mass, the surprise and the conciliation ceremony. Before I still had questions and concerns that needed answers and during the DW they were all answered. I recommend the Discovery Weekend to engaged couples and couples in general for it is a blessing to be reminded of God’s hand and graces for the success of the relationship. I strongly believe that every person who encounters with the DW leaves more loved and ready to love their partners more.
Relationship… Reinforced. Realization and acceptance of flaws, feelings and values. The strong evident actualization of each persons’ “PERSON” and as a couple. Before: We know; After: We’re sure. It insightful, straightforward, helpful and spot on an tackling situations in every aspect of the relationship.
