Is the husband exempt from engaging in it because he’s supposed to be providing? Is the wife expected to do it, just because it’s her turf?
Pre-marital counseling is one of the things couples have to undergo in preparation for the wedding. Since we’re getting married at our home church and our Senior Pastor is officiating our wedding, he and his wife, Tita Joy handled our pre-marital counseling. Apart from them, we’re grateful that some of our principal sponsors have been able to spend time with us before we tie the knot.
There are several sessions for the church pre-marital counseling. We get to discuss the Biblical roles of husband and wife, the importance of a Christ-centered marriage, the role of the couple, leaving and cleaving, finances, sex in marriage, showing Christ-like love to your spouse, submission for the wife and leadership for the husband. While there were concepts that we were already familiar with, it was good to expand our knowledge and also learn from practical, real life examples.
