Michelle and Jose are getting everything ready for their wedding: they’ve finally booked their venue, decided on their catering company, hired a band, and sent out all of their wedding invitations. They’re both excited (and a little nervous) for the big day, but elated to finally tie the knot, after spending 10 loving years together. That being said, they each have concerns about marriage: Both of their parents divorced when Michelle and Jose were teenagers, and the two have been cautious of the idea of marriage ever since. And so, they decide to work with a premarital counselor.

“A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.” –Pearl Buck
