Sooo...DB took my dad out for beers and had "the talk" with Dad about his intentions to marry me. According to dad, DB said "Catz makes my heart happy" :wub: He's also purchased the ring already. (I think he's going to pop the question when we visit his family during the Christmas holiday) Anyhow, we've been debating pre-marital counseling. Both of us are interested in attending, but we're having a REALLY hard time finding one. None of our married friends did counseling, so they can't recommend anyone. One friend said her cousin & her hubby went to a particular counseling agency that she liked. I filled out their online application, then they called to schedule our 30 minute, free phone consultation. We gave them all our information (except credit card) and the receptionist swore she was going to send us a confirmation with the number and extension of the counselor. We never heard from them again. (I found them a little shady anyhow b/c it was $400 for their 4 hour pre-marital program. Basically you receive 3 DVDs, which you watch at home, discuss and answer questions about it with your fiance, then you discuss over the phone with a counselor. If you wanted to do an in office session, it was an additional fee. I can't remember all the breakdowns, but 60 minutes was about $175.00) I emailed another counselor that offered group sessions, no response. My church offers premarital counseling, but it's two 10 week long courses from 5 - 9 p.m (DB has a 1.5 hour commute, so he can get home by 6 at the earliest, sometimes 7:30 at the latest if there's subway delay) So my question is, for the married couples out there, do you recommend marriage counseling and if so, where did you do it?
