My Fiance and I are getting married by our pastor (we both attend the same Southern Baptist Church) and we are going to pre-marital counselling starting in March. What kind of questions should we expect? Thanks!

Our first meeting with our Baptist pastor included questions like: how’d you meet, why are you marrying so and so, what do you love most and least about so and so, etc. Our meetings have really been question based like an interview. It’s really more talking and him sharing advice with us and getting to know my Fiance more. He already knows me because I grew up at the church. He gave us some books to read/work through and explained what the books are about and why he recommends those particular books. He had us take a little “love quiz” that talks about why we’re getting married and what we view as our biggest issues, etc. that way he can make our meetings and our wedding more personal to us. It’s been really laid back and casual and nothing at all like an interrogation. Have fun with it and enjoy taking a break for all the stressful planning to focus on what’s truly important!

I’m interested in the answer to this too!

My Fiance and I just started out premarital counseling. The program we’re going through had us take an initial survey. We discussed the results of it and from here on are basically discussing different issues that will come up in marriage: finances, conflict resolution, communication, relationship roles, etc.

We spent time talking about why we loved each other and our expectations of marriage. Our first homework as to write down 20 expectations we had of the other during marriage. Also, we talked about conflict and how to resolve it, our history together, even our families and background, even sex and birth control. It was really interesting!
