    Keeping- Our pastor does this prior to marrying all couples and its actually been interesting. There hasn't been anything yet that we hadn't known how each other felt about it all prior but its interesting seeing the other couples dynamics as well.

    Skip. We’ve been together for 8 years and living together for 4 and bought a condo together 1.5 years ago. I’m not against counseling but we’re basically already married and actually getting married isn’t going to change our relationship

    Skipping it. Together for 5 years, living together for 3 years....Also, we'd go if we needed it, not just to check it off for an event.

    Skipping. We'll have been together for 10 years and living together for 5 so I think we're good.

    Skipping it, I only recently realized this wasn't just something from the movies. We have already lived together for a few years so we have had plenty of time to work through any issues.

    Keeping it. It is a must to get married in the church but i think it is a good idea to have a way to discuss a lot of these topics to see where each other sits before actually getting married (counseling, marriage prep classes, or discussion questions in a jar).

    Skip. We've lived together for a while now plus we have had our fair share of adventures that have allowed us to grow and a couple.

    Skipping. We've been living together long enough that we know each other pretty well. This seems more related to a couple that hasn't spent enough time living together or discussing the goals within the relationship.

    No. We are skipping this. We aren't getting married in a church so we don't need this. Plus, if we have issues we talk about them, like adults should.

    Keep! It is actually a requirement to be married by our pastor, but we’re eager for it. We think it’s such a great idea to take the advice and counsel given, the stronger we can start our marriage, the better!

    Skipping. By the time we get married (2019) we will have been living together for 6 years and together for 9.5. We know each other pretty well by now.

    We have to have pre-marriage classes with our church but we are also thinking about going to couples therapy once before because we think it could be beneficial to our marriage.

    Skipping. We've been together for over 5 years so were pretty well figured out. I might have liked to do it, but there aren't a lot of services like that provided in our area, and we aren't getting married by a religious officiant.

    Skipping. I think it’d be interesting to take one. We’ve already been together 10 years and living together for 5, so I’m not sure what’d be left for us to discover, but it could be interesting

    Yes we had to in order for our priest to marry us. We didn't find it super necessary for us! It may be for other people though!

    We already are common law partners so technically not that many things will change about our relationship.

    We skipped the pre-wedding course/ counselling. We weren't obligated to have one since it was a civil ceremony and we had discussed all the topics usually covered to make sure we understood what we were getting into and what each of our perspectives and expectations on things were.

    Keeping. We've learned so much already and we only had one session! We have a really good relationship already, and just thought we would go to confirm we are doing things right. Which we are but still want to learn as much as we can. We are actually doing marriage mentorship so will be meeting with a married couple once a month until we are married and then every other month during our first year of marriage.

    Skipping. We have pretty good communication and have been pretty much functioning as a married couple just without the paperwork for a number of years already.

    We skipped. We're pretty open with our communication and we've talked about if the need ever arises that we'd both be willing to go in the future.
