I say go for it!  We did an 8-week course though our parents church called “prepare to last” 

We don’t really have any issues either but it did help us get to know each other on another level.  And a lot of the things we went through are things we don’t normally just sit down and really have long in-depth conversations about. 

One of the main points of the program was that you put time and effort into all the little things in life, so why wouldn’t you put tons of time and effort into preparing your marriage to last?

We’re using “Preparing For Marriage” with our Pastor at our church (we’re non-denominational Christians)

My Fiance & I were friends for years before dating & really don’t have any “problems” either, tend to be on the same page about our “expectations” of marriage, & communicte really well… BUT

I have to say that the affirmation of this book has been great! & has brought up some past hurts that I didn’t even realize I still had… DEFINITELY HIGHLY SUGGEST IT! =)

We’re starting ours this week. It’s through my church, but offered to anyone who wants to come (and pays for the books and such).

I agree with M.Ruder that it definitely gets you talking about things that you don’t normally just sit down and talk about. Forces you to go through less comfortable issues and not gloss over them.

I’ve been reading through our material and I’m really excited. From what I’ve read the #1 way to prevent divorce is to enter into marriage with the committment that divorce is not an option (obviously except for very extreme situations).

We’re going to see a marriage/couples counselor. We had trouble finding something non-denominational and a friend recommended someone to us. We’re not getting married in a church, so nothing is required, but we want to be prepared for marriage!! We know there are some big issues that we tend to avoid, so we’re hoping that a therapist will be able to help us communicate better.
