Couples participating in the Yad B’Yad program attend a minimum of two Facilitator led individual couple education sessions.  Small group seminars with up to 6 other couples may be offered subject to interest.

Prior to meeting with a Facilitator, couples individually complete an on-line questionnaire, Prepare 2000, which includes questions relating to communication, conflict resolution, flexibility, parenting, intimacy, religion and finances.

The Prepare-Enrich organisation analyses the couple’s responses to the on-line questionnaire and produces a customised report which is returned to the Facilitator. Couples receive an individual report, which is interpreted and reviewed with their Facilitator.

The Facilitator helps the couple interpret the results, and reviews the strength and growth areas identified.  In addition to receiving a workbook to take home with you, these sessions may include discussions and additional exercises designed to explore your goals, expectations of marriage and improve your communication skills.  An optional third session with the Facilitator can be organised by the couple.

All Facilitators used by the Yad B’Yad program have undertaken training and are accredited by the Prepare-Enrich organisation.


The total cost of the Yad B’Yad program is $250, to be paid to the Facilitator at the couple’s first meeting.

This includes $35 (approx) which is paid to the Prepare-Enrich organisation and covers the costs associated with tabulating the results of the questionnaire and providing each couple with an individualised report.

Facilitators are paid $180 for 2 feedback sessions with the couple and the remainder goes to Yad B’Yad to cover administrative costs.

Prepare 2000 questionnaire

The questionnaire, Prepare 2000 (Premarital Personal Relationship Evaluation) is an internationally recognised and widely used tool in pre-marriage education, with more than 3 million couples using the inventory world-wide since its introduction in 1980.  Yad B’Yad uses the Australian version of the questionnaire, which has been tailored for local use.
