CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of Spain have adopted a new 3-year program of preparation for marriage, replacing the current norm that provides for just five hours of preparation. The new program is a response to the country’s soaring divorce rate; almost 60% of married couples divorce within 15 years.
