Pre-Marital Counseling Lessons?

how many of us did pre-marital counseling?


do you find yourself using the communication tools you learned there in your marriage now?


i'm finding i use what i learn more and more... i mean, i'm not changing my entire life - but i def have more patience, or make more of an effort ot be patient etc...


if you had a sister or friend who was recently engaged - would you suggest it or dissuade them from it?

We did it through the Church that married us! I definitely think it helps. The biggest thing for me was learning how to fight better and not blame everything on my husband! We were taught to use "I" statements instead of "you" statements and I think it makes a big difference! 


I would definitely recommend it to someone else!

We did it through our church as well, one of the main things is it helped me not be such a cryer lol.  It just kinda put a sense of peace in our relationship...made us really realize how much we truly love each other :)


YES - I recommend it to everyone!

We did it through church too. I think that it was really good. We really learned to focus on us and our family, that we are going to have outside influences like in-laws, children (eventually), work, friends, etc., but out of all of that our marriage comes first. I would definitely recommend it to anyone before they get married.
