Continuing the series on what you learn in premarital education, this month’s column focuses on faith and values.
We’re not just talking about religion, although that is an important factor. Faith and values include morals, ethics, spirituality, what’s important to you, and how you incorporate all those factors in your life and relationship.
Because most premarital counseling is conducted by ministers or lay church leaders, church doctrine on marriage will be a focal point of the education.
Common sense tells us that couples who share religious beliefs are more likely to have a successful relationship.
