Skill A02: behaviour and lifestyle Explain how, in the course of their marriage, Roman Catholics and other Christians couples would apply the beliefs have mentioned to their behaviour, lifestyle and decision-making. Some Roman Catholics and other Christians find it hard to apply the beliefs I have mentioned to their behaviour, lifestyle and decision-making in their marriage.
