Disclaimer: This is where the obvious is stated & some other things I want to make sure you know. The marriage preparation guide at www.marriagepreparationonline.com is not designed to serve as a predictor of your marital success. If you use the guide, it is not a guarantee that your marriage will be successful. I am not a licensed therapist and don’t present myself as such. If you have great difficulty working through the guide on your own, it’s a good sign that you should seek out professional help. Go to a therapist or see a local minister. The material in this guide is based on my work with couples over the years as a nondenominational minister, as well as my Masters & Doctoral level course work in counseling. With this guide, like most things, you’ll get out of it what you put into it.
