Difficult to see what a priest can teach you about mariage.

All the best for the future

No pre-marital course necessary.

The ceremony in the church is a "celebration of marriage" - i.e. you do not actually get married in the church in France but, after a civil marriage at the Mairie, you can "celebrate" your marriage in the church.

You would not need to attend a pre-marriage course even if one of you were Muslim.

Hi Yvonne,

I am not sure what the local church rules are here but I would advise that a pre marriage course is absolutely necessary for the two of you.  I think I know a church that does this.  If you want me to find out let me know.
