How to make a marriage a perennially happy nest, and encourage future husbands to remain romantic? These lessons are just part of Almawaddah’s three-day premarital training course for brides-to-be called “The Good Start”, which took place during the first weekend of October. And according to the Jeddah-based charitable organization dedicated to facilitating social reform, just listening more closely to our nearest and dearest may be the lifeline many family relationships need.
Preserving families and maintaining healthy marriages is Almawaddah’s mission; in the last two years, it has helped 22,518 Saudis complete 877 training courses in various marital issues. Topics include modes of communication between the couple on the night before the wedding, wedding etiquette, the art of containing marital problems, and dealing with relatives. Other sessions train mothers in how to listen better to their children. The group also has a daily hotline to advise men and women about familial issues.
