"who have eight hours or more of premarital counseling............. McCullough said the goal of the counseling is to expose couples to the idea that they can get help if problems develop in their marriage"
Must take a long time to tell some people that they can get help for their marriage problems.
What I remember about secular marriage counselors, is that they usually counsel divorce? I would suggest couples pay out the extra $45 to avoid the secular nonsense, and read such booklets as To Tie the Knot or Not? and Divorce on Trial.
