Before You Say “I Do”

Chelsea and I went to a marriage retreat this last weekend. Some of what we heard makes it way into our discussion.

We direct this episode mostly toward engaged couples to prepare Biblically for marriage.

We encourage premarital counseling, but show the difference between secular and Biblical questions.

If you’re getting close to that wedding day, understand how being married is very different from the single dating stage.

We wrap up by looking at marriage advice from older veterans of the craft.
