  1. On the topic of pre-marital counseling….before my wife and I became engaged 25 years ago, we worked through a “handbook for engaged couples”, because I wanted to deal with most of those issues before we decided to get married instead of after. Then, as a Pastor, I found most couples are far less teachable after they get engaged, even though some seem to have made a terrible decision. So, I do “Pre-engagement” counseling most often. It helps couples make a more solid decision about marriage. I’m not sure how many other pastors do this, I just thought I’d pass it along. I’ve found it to be a very helpful practice for couples considering marriage; in my opinion more helpful that pre-marital.
