We just attended the last required session from Don Bosco yesterday (March 7, 2012). We didn’t know what to expect since I didn’t find any information or stories in any blogs.
Anyway, I don’t know why it’s called marriage counselling since the attendees aren’t married yet. It should be called pre-marital counselling instead to avoid confusion hehe.
The session is 1-hr long. Unlike the pre-cana where there were a lot of speakers, this time the speaker is just the parish priest. The talk is all about the scriptures and doctrines of the church regarding marriage. Unlike the pre-cana where it’s more on the practical situations, it is more technical in a sense. Just imagine you’re sitting in your Theology class during college. That’s the best comparison I can come up with.
This is just based on our experience. I think that the sessions in Don Bosco always depend on who the speaker is. So there, that concludes our requirements for the church. Yay!
