What is a Relationship Assessment?
The PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment is an online survey that you take with your partner to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital or married relationship. It is a sophisticated instrument that must be interpreted by a trained facilitator, counselor or your certified pastor or priest. It is not a pass/fail instrument nor are the results intended to determine Marital Success
