@REchick:  We had our pastor do our marriage counseling. Is a pastor marrying you? Perhaps he can do it.

It says they can help refer you to a professional or it looks like you can go through it on your own. This looks like the same thing DH and I did (except the counselors are in Canada) and it was pretty interesting. It’s basically a personality assessment that shows how you are the same and different. The counselor then gave us tools to work through our differences when they come up in the future.

Yes!  We had 2 months of premarital counseling by our pastor and had a great experience, so we’re continuing with a private counselor.  We don’t have major issues or anything, just would like to establish good communication habits from the very beginning.  To set that up, all we did was Google search couples counseling specialists, then called the office to make an appointment.  I highly recommend whether you’re a year away from getting married or 10 years in…it has done wonders for couple friends of mine.

We’re doing that via Pre-Cana, even though there was drama in that end.  

After we’re done, we’re meeting up with our priest about the FOCCUS results.

@REchick:  Personally, I think it’s a good idea to get it out of the way at least 6 months in advance.  The closer you are to your wedding date, the more distracted and stressed out you are by all the to-do’s, and stress isn’t conducive to a good therapy session.  We started our sessions after our first meeting with our pastor, which was about 1 year before the wedding date.
