A priest may choose to have a Marriage Sponsor Couple assist in your preparation by meeting with you several times. They work alongside and in cooperation with your priest, and oftentimes review and discuss your personal inventory results (described in the next section).
This married couple can be a great resource and blessing to you, bringing with them experience and wisdom from living their own vocation. The couple chosen for you is a sign of the prayers and support of your parish and the whole faith community. They will welcome you into their home, share both your enthusiasm and any concerns for your upcoming marriage, and help you along the way.
