Marriage is a covenant relationship ordained by God, uniting one man and one woman together, that was not meant to be broken. It is a lifelong commitment; for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer until death do you part. Therefore, it is very important to not only plan your wedding, but to PLAN YOUR MARRIAGE.
What a great reward it is to marry and spend the rest of your life with the one you love! While it may be rewarding, it can also be tough. Prepare yourself by getting pre-martial counseling (Before I Do) to discuss the importance of communication, decision making, finances, family, intimacy, work, faith, just to name a few, and to continue relationship enhancement After I Do.
