OK. A bit of explanation for some of our less-Catholic readers. Pre-Cana refers to the story from the bible, although there was plenty of water and not much wine.
Basically, it is a day of counseling for engaged couples. Although there is some talking by the priest (because, you know, they're experts on married life), most of the event is married couples who talk a bit about their experiences.
It's pretty much what you would expect, including warnings about the importance of communication, financial planning and that sort of thing.
It boiled down to two lessons:
- God loves you no matter what. But He loves you more if you have lots of children.
- Don't get divorced. Ever.
