So FI and I met with our pastor last night for our first real pre-marital counseling session. We had met with him once at the beginning of summer, but didn't go into a lot of detail about things, it was more of a how are things going/are you on track with your plans sort of a meeting. Our meeting last night went really well. We sat and talked for almost 2 1/2 hours. Our topics were setting boundaries with family as we "leave and cleave", money, and communication. Overall I'd say it was a really good first session. I can't remember what he said we'd be discussing next time, but then we'll have probably only one more session where we'll discuss intimacy. He said to me, for that conversation he'll need to know my beliefs and plans for birth control, so that how he counsels us will be relevant to our decision. I don't care that he asked, I'm open with my beliefs and decisions regarding it, but I found it a little funny that he asked for my decision, not our decision.
