Quoting KelseyLynn4446:" did you do it? How was it? Do you feel it made a difference? How long did it take to complete?"
We did it. It was great. We took the "compatibility" test and it gave us an idea of what we differ on and how to compliment rather than conflict. The priest then walked us thru the majors in a marriage. Where to live, finances, children religion, ect.... I can't remember how long it was (it was nearly 8 years ago). I know it wasn't the full year like the Catholic Church wanted. We were married in an Episcopal church. I am catholic, he is luthern so we split the difference! lol
Make no mistakes, we still have issues from time to time. That is typical. You just have to remember that any good relationship takes work.
