are you doing pre-marital counseling
Posted 26 May 2009 - 06:02 PM
i was wondering if you and your Fi are planning on doing pre-marital counseling. i presented the idea to my FI and he completely dismissed it! he said he doens't want to speak to a stranger about our "would be" problems. i think he connects it to religion too. he's not religious at all and really wants to stay away from that as much as he can. i respect that - but i do think it would be good if we knew ahead of time what to expect and how to easily solve problems when they arise.
what did you tell your FI and how did he take this proposition?

How's the pre-marital counseling you have in mind?

I'd recommend simply letting your FI know that it's something that's important to you that you feel strongly about.

Good luck making your decision and just keep communicating with him about how you feel. It's obviously something that's important enough for you to bring up.

Though I belive I'll try to set something up for us when we are still newlyweds, the information you learn are amazing and its just helpfull to have a strong foundation to start off on.

i think that he was a little more hesitant about it becasue the conversation came up when my sister asked me about. she's a born again Christian and she and her husband go to church very often. my FI and i are not church lovers.
how do i present this idea to him again and making him understand that it has nothing to do with religion? i really think i need your help ladies!!!
