Relationship Therapy or Lessons in Love

It's at that six month mark - where all the magical deadlines start to appear.

Once such deadline is mandatory couples counseling. Church requires it, so we're going to do it. But it got me thinkng of relationship health, and reminded me of an article I read awhile back and saved: http://washingtonian.com/articles/weddingguide/2201.html

It's about marriage education and its mitigating effects on romantic strife. As much as I love all the wedding esthetic hoopla, my primary focus is building a sustainable relationship.

But I admit, I was a little apprehensive when I first read the article and then started considering doing something preemptive (at the time I didn't know that we would have mandatory counseling). Would we be in effect saying that there might be something wrong by entertaining such courses?

As I'm about to embark on couples counseling it's all moot, and once I rationally thought about it, this is a lifetime we're talking about. I might want to do all that I can to prepare myelf and us for it.
