My Celebrant Said I Should Go to a Counselor, Is This Right?
From the spelling of counselor, I assume that this enquirer is in the United States. Here in Australia, we recommend that couples have some form of pre-marriage education, but this isn’t mandatory. We don’t tell them they should see a counselor because that implies that there is a problem in their relationship. However, an education course gives them tools to learn how to communicate effectively with each other, navigate difficult circumstances when life ‘happens’ (and it does ‘happen’ for all of us) and how and when to compromise if necessary. It is a way to deepen an already strong relationship, not to try to fix something that is broken. If there are problems now then it’s not wise to rush into marriage.
