* If the kids go to either a public school or a private school that ''isn't'' a Catholic school, they attend religious education (officially referred to as CCD or catechism), typically on Saturday morning. Even if they ''do'' go to school, they may attend such classes if preparing for a sacrament (such as [[RiteOfPassage Confirmation]]). (Think of it like CramSchool, except it focuses on the teachings of the Church rather than preparing for an exam.)

* Those married couples who ''aren't'' so HappilyMarried will probably not divorce, but rather will put on a HappyMarriageFacade. They may or may not try to work it out or attend (either religious or secular) marriage counseling. [[note]] The Catholic church frowns upon civil divorce, and encourages couples to work out their problems whenever possible, however, contrary to popular belief, does not prohibit civil divorce or legal separation. What it ''does'' prohibit is remarriage after a civil divorce, unless a Church annulment has been obtained as well. Someone who is divorced and wants to remarry ''without'' this step may do so, but they will have to do so ''outside'' of the Catholic church...and they are not permitted to receive Holy Communion. [[/note]] Rarely, they might be separated (but not divorced), or might get a civil divorce and an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_of_nullity annulment]] from the Church. In some of the more extreme examples, DivorceRequiresDeath.

* Teens or preteens receiving TheTalk [[DoubleStandard (girls in particular)]] will be advised that sex before marriage is considered a sin, and that [[NatureAdoresAVirgin virginity is valued]]...and [[DefiledForever can never be restored once lost]]. Some choose to do it anyway (see the above-mentioned CatholicSchoolgirlsRule trope), others won't.

* Similarly, an engaged couple is required to do "pre-Cana" classes/counseling beginning six months in advance of the wedding, which will always be a ''very'' elaborate event, at least on television. (In RealLife, smaller, simpler weddings are certainly doable, and aren't necessarily a full Mass, particularly in the case of a Catholic marrying a non-Catholic.) In addition to standard pre-Cana classes, some couples may also do an "engagement encounter" retreat.
