Marriage comes with a heavy commitment and responsibility. In any marriage, two people commit to taking the necessary steps to build a life together and to stick to each other’s love forever.

Because people may not be able to see the facts and investigate properly before marriage due to interest and enthusiasm, it is best to seek premarital counseling by an experienced professional. It is not without merit to mention that the counselor does not decide for you, but by talking to both people and taking personality tests if necessary, he can inform you of the challenges ahead and train you to face them.
