On Pre-Engagement Counseling
In this post, we explore the different stages of dating/courting and explain why we think that pre-engagement counseling is important *before* the proposal is made and accepted.
There are three very important factors to consider when moving forward with pre-engagement counseling. We discuss them with you here.

“I take you to be my…”
“… lawfully wedded husband/wife…”
“… to have and to hold from this day forward…”
“… for better or for worse…”
“… for richer, for poorer…”
“… in sickness and in health…”

“… from this day forward, until death do us part.”
