Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are planning to take part in a pre-marriage course.
The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker popped the question to the 21-year-old model over the weekend following years of on/off dating and, although they’re happier than ever, they’ve decided to attend a five-week course – which will cover financial management and intimacy – run by controversial celebrity megachurch Hillsong before they get hitched.

Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!
A source told the DailyMail.com: “The marriage course is something which is encouraged and in some cases demanded by Hillsong pastors before they will marry you. Justin obviously has a past; he had a long-term relationship with Selena Gomez, and he wants to go into life with Hailey with a clean slate.
“It is something they are both keen to do as faith is important to them and it will really help build a strong foundation for the years they plan to spend together.”
The couple both take their faith seriously and have been seen attending Hillsong services in both Australia and New Zealand over the past four years.
Justin, 24, is also very friendly with senior pastor Carl Lentz and often credits him for helping him see the error of his ways following numerous run-ins with the law.
An insider explained: “Justin loves, honors and respects Hailey and takes this commitment very seriously. They had their differences and that is why they split – but now he feels this is 100 percent right and can’t wait to be her husband.” The five-week course will start with an online assessment of the strengths and weakness in their relationship before the church will look at the results and decide which areas need to be targeted throughout the month-long sessions.
According to the Hillsong Church website, every couple taking part will be assigned a ‘support couple’ and asked to attend five classes over a five-week period. It says: “If you weren’t ready for marriage before, you will be now.”
