The FOCCUS© Pre-Marriage Inventory is a comprehensive, user-friendly tool to help couples prepare for marriage. The FOCCUS© Inventory is designed to help engaged couples appreciate their unique relationship, learn more about themselves, and discuss topics important to their lifelong marriage.

How The FOCCUS© Pre-Marriage Inventory Works: A 5 Step Process Worth Taking!

Meet with Veronica Olson in the Parish Office

Couples meet with the marriage coordinator, who then distributes the FOCCUS© Pre-Marriage Inventory to the couple–either via online access or in paper-pencil form.

Couples Response to Inventory

Couples respond to the inventory independently, on a computer or on paper, to indicate their level of agreement, disagreement, or indecision about statements related to issues such as Communication, Problem-Solving, Religion, Dual Careers, Cohabitation, Parenting, Sexuality, Finances and more.

FOCCUS Inventory Scoring

Scoring of the FOCCUS Inventory can be done in two ways at St. Mark:

  1. Online Administration – Couple takes the inventory online (on any computer that has an Internet connection) and Facilitator prints the scored Couple Report from his/her computer
  2. QuickScore entry – Couple takes the inventory on paper and Facilitator enters the couples’ written responses into any computer that has an Internet connection and prints the Couple Report.

FOCCUS© Couple Report

A FOCCUS © Couple Report provides the FOCCUS Facilitator a personalized profile of topics and areas warranting time and attention, affirmation and/or problem solving by the couple.

Couple’s Rating Provided

Couple’s are provided with a rating and planning booklet called FOCCUS© For the Future to help them integrate what they have learned from the FOCCUS Pre-Marriage Inventory and build on the awareness gained.
