Does anyone else going through Pre Cana think their wedding preparation it is a little excessive? Due to work I can't go to the "family planning/ intimacy day" which is 6 -8 hours. My fiancée and I have already attended 4 1 1/2 hour sessions + another two which are scheduled. For the next meeting in September we have to have watched the "God's Plan for a Joy Filled Marriage" which is six 45 min dvd sections, complete a work book for the dvds and read a 200 pg book about sex and marriage. I enjoy the discussions about future, finances, religious philosophy (fiancée is Episcopal), but am starting to feel the strain. I know several people, including my sister, who were married at my church over the past 10 years, but none of them seem to have such an extensive preparation. I work over an hour away from the church I grew up at and am starting to feel the squeeze. I am starting to dread going and even my fiancée keeps asking "how many more" sessions we have to attend. Can anyone else relate?
