Planning a wedding can be exciting, but also draining and stressful. With so many decisions to be made, it can be tough on anyone in any relationship. Thinking past the wedding, to married life, brings about another set of decisions and changes, which can also create apprehension and stress.
Even the most happy and prepared couples, will find benefit in premarital counseling. Sometimes, a pastor or priest may require counseling before they agree to perform the wedding ceremony. Other times, couples will choose premarital counseling to set themselves up for success. Either way, couples find it helpful.
