Pre Marital Counseling?

Recommended Posts

Just an update, the counseling is going good. It wasn't odd at all and it gives us a chance to talk things over in a different way then before. It also helped us to deal with the crazy behavior of the FILs. My childhood pastor gave wonderful advice that if we focus on each other, they will eventually grow around us. I thought that was pretty neat. The book we use is called, "Before you say I do" by Wes Roberts. While we don't go to deep into the scripture, we touch on it a little.

We did the pre-cana day last week at a church. It was one day (8-5) but for what they call "convalidated couples" meaning you live together or are already civilly married. We actually enjoyed it. We've lived together for 6 years so a beginner type class would have bored us. One funny moment was when they asked us to write down the most money we would feel comfortable spending without first consulting our spouse and then share and discuss amongst the two of us. Turns out FI wouldn't spend more than $50 without telling me first while I am totally comfortable spending $350 and telling him after the fact. Stuff like that comes up. It's fun to discuss and it never would have come up sitting around the house. Enjoy!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
