I totally understand the nerves – I had them too!  But, you will be pleasantly surprised how low-key it is.  Is the Pastor also the one who will be marrying you?  If so, he’s probably going to try to get material for the ceremony and get to know you more.  Think of it as meeting up with an old family friend who is meeting you for the first time.  He’ll ask how you met, maybe your favorite things about each other, challenging things about your relationship, how you feel about kids, finances… things like that.  It’s like a cross between a date and a job interview!

@UsMcB2B:  Meh…he’s going to ask you about money, your families, how you plan to compromise on the holidays and that kind of stuff…kids, god…which way you put the toilet paper on the spinner….it’s pretty tame….I spiced up our interview by asking what HIS success rate was, how many marriages….how many divorces…how many unsolved murders, what the emergency plan was in case of dramatic objection, how he felt about full contact wedding vows….it cracked the guy up, we drank some lemonade and ate these weird cakey cookies….that was about it.

Our sessions were very much about the pastor getting to know us and making sure that we knew each other and had had basic discussions about important things, like finances, desire to have children, sharing the workload on a home, etc. It was nice.
