Pre Marital Counseling?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone have pre marital counseling yet? If so, what did you think of it. We are starting our counseling this Saturday with the Pastor from my childhood church which I have not attended in like 8 years .

I don't think we are doing Pre-Marital counseling but I have been on the other end, actually being the counselor....and I have to tell you, it is one of my favorite therapy modalities!!! Its VERY useful and I would highly recommend it! I would also recommend the book "The Hard Questions" (can't think of the author....its on Amazon.com) its "100 questions you should ask before getting married" and it is a phenomenal book! I use it with all my pre-marital couples and Matt and I have started it also. Its a real eye-opener sometimes :)

Just from the title it sounds like a good book. Often times couples, especially those that haven't lived together or haven't lived on their own, dont think about how they our their spouse will handle the day-to-day tasks and stresses that will come up. Getting these questions out in the open early is ALWAYS a good idea!

My friends used that book and loved it. I need to go buy it - thanks for the reminder!!!

 

We are going to an engagement encounter weekend this coming weekend at his mom's church. We initially signed up to please his mom but I'm really glad we are doing it and have heard great things about it. As others said, I think getting the hard questions / difficult topics out in the open is always good! I'll let you know how it goes.

Karen and I were reading that book yesterday together. She picked it up a while back and has had nothing but good to say about it so far.

We did pre-marital counseling with my childhood pastor. At first I thought it might be kind of weird since I'm not really religious. But I'm very comfortable with him and David really likes him too.

 

Anyway, just wanted to say that religious beliefs and all that aside...it was a great experience. We really liked it a lot. We had already talked about a lot of the topics he brought up, but it was great having an outside perspective on the things that we seem to keep hashing over! ;-)

 

I say go for it!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
