RELATIONSHIP AND MARITAL PLANNING WORKSHEET
The following questions are important to address in pre-marital counseling. They may be somewhat difficult to answer from the standpoint of a pre-marital status. However, they are questions that will come up in one form or another as you move through the stages of your marital relationship. Even if you cannot answer them definitively now, they are certainly issues for which it is helpful to be aware throughout your relationship. They can act as a roadmap to your relational growth and development.
It is best to answer them on your own and to then share your answers with your prospective spouse for discussion in session if you are in pre-marital counseling.
