I have done a little research about covenant marriages (specifically in Louisiana) and I think it’s something my fiance and I would like to do. Before I go to him about it, I wanted ask what are y’alls opinions, expieriences, etc. with covenant marriages vs. noncovenant marriages?

I hadn’t heard of it before and had to google it!!! I don’t know anyone who had had a legal covenenat marraige but it sounds a lot like what most people are going to do. A lot of couple have premarital counseling and will have counseling when problems arise. I wouldn’t do it as it sounds like just more paperwork and i’m not religious. From what I read, you and your Fiance can basically have a covenant marriage without it being a legal one. Go to counseling not, sign an agreement between yourselves to commit to counseling if need be, etc. I think marriage should be between 2 people, however that works for them. I don’t see a real advantage of having laws/govt dictate what a couple has to do. Just my two cents. Good luck!

Apparently it can be done after the marriage too. I didn’t know that 5 minutes ago. I think if we do it, it’ll be after the wedding. We cant afford the counseling now anyway. lol

I thought about doing the legal covenant marriage too. But we believe marriage is a covenant as it is, so we felt no need to have the paper that says it is. Maybe in the future I’ll file to have it changed, but as it is now I just don’t see the need.
