This course is the fruit of many years of study and counseling practice by Dr. Nabil B. Soliman, MD, PhD with a Master’s degree in Christian counseling and active member in the American Association of Christian Counselors and approved Marriage counselor in the Coptic Orthodox Church. This course was presented by Dr. Soliman in English during the Virgin Mary Spiritual revival in August 2005. 

By the grace of God, Virgin Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in Montreal, Canada is happy to make available this set of lecture notes and audio file to all young adults, engaged, newly married couples as well as married couples who look forward to healthier marital relationships.

May God use this course for the edification and prosperity of Christian Marriages through the intercessions of the Theotokos, the Ever-Virgin Saint Mary.
