  • "I Still Do" 2019

    "I Do" - 2 words that will change your life. "I Still Do" - 3 words that will reaffirm your life-long commitment to each other.

    The road to a long lasting marriage may have its ups and downs. But the promise to never give up on each other is everlasting. Organised by the Families for Life Council, "I Still Do" is an annual marriage outreach programme to encourage couples to love and care for each other regardless of their differences, and be committed to making their marriage last.

    This year, from February to April 2019, we are inviting couples from all ages and all walks of life to celebrate your love and marriage with us. Look out for a line-up of enriching talks, workshops and online content to equip couples with marriage tips, and interactive, bonding activities allowing couples the opportunity to spend quality time together!

    Background 

    Golden Jubilee Wedding Celebrations

    Marriage is a lifelong commitment together. Though the journey may have its ups and downs, it is worth it at the end of the day, knowing that we have someone special who loves and cares for us regardless of our differences.

    About 170 couples can attest to that as they celebrated over 50 years of marriage at the inaugural Golden Jubilee Wedding Celebrations last year, orgarnised by The Registry of Civil Marriages and the Registry of Muslim Marriages.

    In our celebration of love and marriage this year, couples who had been married for 50 years or more in 2018 will get to reaffirm their commmitment to each other at a renewal-of-commitment ceremony on 13 April.

    I Do...I Will

    "Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans." - Peter F. Drucker

    Is it possible to have a great marriage?

    You read about the increasing rate of divorces. You know of friends who are in the midst of divorce. You hear horror stories about marriages. You may even have doubts about whether your own marriage may survive the long haul.

    All of us want happiness and fulfilment in the marital relationship with our spouses but may not see the fruits of our labour. It all boils down to the decisions we make. The decisions you make today will determine the marriage you have tomorrow. The choices you make each day determine the quality of your marriage and the positive legacy you wish to leave behind for your children.

    In this workshop, you will gain insights to fail-proof your marriage by having a deeper understanding of the different types and levels of commitment. Through an experienced marriage counsellor of close to 10 years, you will discover the different commitments that will enable both yourself and your spouse to experience a richer, deeper, more authentic relationship; resulting to a more rewarding and passionate love life that you have always wanted!
