Premarital Counseling: Week 3

This weeks premarital counseling class was pretty cool!

We went around in a circle discussing something that many couples do not discuss together: Fear.

Realistically, EVERY person in a relationship has some sort of fear, no matter what stage of the relationship you are in. It is SUPER important to discuss these fears with your significant other.

Many men have the fear that they will not be able to financially provide for his wife. This is a VERY real fear that needs to be discussed.

Most fears can quickly be calmed with a simple, honest conversation, as long as the other person responds with an open heart.

So, this week, an exercise for you and your hubby to be is to share your fears, weaknesses, and more importantly have your spouse share how they can help reduce your fear. It will be a neat way to bring you closer and more on the same page. It really was a special conversation for myMr and me.

Take care until next time,

I think that was a great topic for discussion. If you get your fears out into the open it helps so much. I can't hold stuff like that in, so this class would have been right up my alley.

I'm glad you guys did well during it!
