Why not look into premarital counseling? I think that would be a great idea.

Yes, couples counseling is a tool that has many purposes, the first and foremost is helping you strengthen your relationship through improved and more open lines of communication. IMO, there’s never a bad time.

You don’t have to wait until there’s a problem to seek couple’s counseling. Like  cherrypie said, it’s all about working on communication and stregthening your relationship.

@xSparr0w:  we did pre-engagement counseling – not through a professional, but we got them from very very wise church elders who’ve done premaritcal counseling. Absolutely LOVE it. We were LDR as well so i highly recommend this as a way of knowing where you each stand on many issues you may not have thought about!

@xSparr0w:  Also, it’s better to go together, this is an experience for the two of you together. This has made it difficult because we were LDR and a lot of people asked for us to be in person together.

@xSparr0w:  Look on John Gottman’s website for counselors trained in their method. They have a very scientific approach. Also read some of his books. I highly recommend them!
