Premarital counseling: Is it necessary?
Whether or not to attend premarital counseling is what most couples planning a wedding have to decide. Most people I know do it; I kinda assume it’s a prerequisite for all couples intending to tie the knot.
Janet – soon to be married – asked her fiancé Trevon where he thinks they should take theirs. “Is it a must?” he asked. “I don’t think people value premarital counseling as you think. It’s just another way of someone forcing their opinions on you. Remember the movie ‘License to Wed’? God forbid if we encounter a counselor like that minister.”
Before Janet protested, he had a comeback already: “Do you want us to be robots like Veronica and Michael? Honey, I don’t want you to judge me by the dos and don’ts given in those counseling sessions. Let’s just be real. ”

Well, there are so many things that are taught in these counseling sessions … from financial management, communication, to sex. Most people enter marriage for different reasons ranging from genuine love to reaching the sell-by date. These are some of the things that are tackled and some people even decide not to go ahead with the marriage after the counseling.
Do you think premarital counseling is necessary? Can this save a marriage from going down the divorce trend?
