When are you ladies planning on starting your counseling, if you're going to do it.

Re: Wedding Counseling

  • We're going to do it, but I honestly have no idea when we're going to start.  A lot of it depends on whether or not my pastor can marry us, since we'd have to do it through him if he did.  There's a chance he can't marry us, so we'd have to find somewhere/someone else.  I feel like we'll probably start 6-3 months before the wedding though.

  • I have no idea....I have to find out.  Our Pastor requires counseling before he performs the marriage ceremony.

  • We started right after we got engaged with a counselor specializing in couples therapy. It's amazing things you learn about each other even after being together so long.
  • We will probably start ours here in a few months...

  • We are trying to find a place to do counseling.  We have very opposite work schedules, so I haven't been able to find a therapist who will work with us when we're available.

  • We had one meeting with my pastor back in February and he requires 8 or so sessions, so I'm going to try to make an appointment to start them within the next month.

  • We're doing our counseling with two pastors.  The one is leaving the church to take a ministerial position in Georgia later this summer so we're going to be starting his portion of our counseling very soon...we're in the process of scheduling.

    I'm sorry to be the asshole but this is a huge pet peeve: it's MARRIAGE counseling, not wedding counseling. The wedding is just a day.



  • We already started ours as part of the requirements to get married in the catholic church.  We're actually really enjoying it so far.

    I'm not for it, but since FI wants his childhood mentor to do out ceremony I will support it. I am waiting to hear from him however becasue the pastor now lives in TX and will be making a family trip up here for the wedding. Guess I should get on confirming that since I have other questions for him ;)

    Edit: Sorry the siggy is so big- I am fixing it!

    We aren't doing it. It's not required. And almost everything that would be covered( or what I imagine would be covered, we've been there done that).

    Speaking as a family and marriage therapist, it's actually called PRE-MARITAL counseling, since nobody is actually married yet.

  • We have to do it if I want my Rabbi to marry us and I do he has known my family and I for 15 yrs. I had Fi and I meet him and discuss what would be recommended of us and by the end of the hr Fi asked if he would marry us once we complete our sessions!

    It will consist of a 150 compatiability questionairre and 12 sessions going over it. We've done the questionairre and had session 1 last week. Turns out we are 89% compatiable after 9 yrs of being together I would hope we know some things of each other lol. It was interesting to see our scores and while taking the test I was surprised at how much stuff we had already discussed.

    We have basically 11 more sessions to go and plan on finishing them this summer as he goes back to school in the Fall and I do not want to procrastinate and wait until the last minute. Session 2 is this Wednesday and I think were going to double it up with session 3!
