Summary/Abstract: The signs of contemporary crisis of marriage in Europe and in Poland are visible in the increasing number of invalid marriages and the dissolution of both marriage and family bonds. The deep reflection upon sociocultural situation, the practice of the sacrament of marriage preparation and making a diagnosis of this field of priesthood are crucial. The durability of marriage and family is strictly connected with such social phenomena as: the development of new cultural models, the ease of customs, media impact on culture, restricting faith to private sphere and marginalization of the significance of the Church. Sociocultural changes lead to the need of formulating a positive answer and implementing conclusions in the practice of preparation for the sacrament of marriage. Such postulates emerge from different fields: psychology, interpersonal communication, Christian formation, homogeneity of requirements and rules.
