One of the things I regret about our wedding planning process is that we didn't go to pre-marital counseling. It just didn't occur to us. We were so wrapped up in planning our wedding, completing all our DIY projects, looking for new jobs, buying a house, and coordinating a move from Denver to Houston.
Now that we're settled, it's time to go. I agree with the cheesy (yet true!) idea that love is verb more than a noun. Relationships take work. They require skills and strategies. We're always looking for ways to improve our conflict resolution and communication.
Reader Roxanne let me know about an amazing program in good ol' Houston, TX (as part of the larger network of programs called Twogether in Texas). Couples can sign up for a secular course for free (with lunch provided!). At the end of the day, they receive a voucher for $60 off their marriage license. Very cool. Thanks, Texas!
We're going to try and sign up for the March 14 class. I'll let you know what we learn.
