Most people out there agree that marriage is tough. Between the compromises, the conversations about money, and the legal obligation to sleep next to a sweaty person; having a spouse isn't all about playing house and playing doctor. The crew at YourTango.com highly recommends looking into a sesh or two with an expert or a respected, older person before putting your wedding face on. In all honesty, what can it hurt? Should Premarital Counseling Be A Marriage Requirement?
Some of us have neither the money nor the inclination to participate in a little premarital counseling (it's bullsh to say you don't have time: if a successful relationship is important to you and you have the money or are inclined, do it). And for the people who are tight on money or motivation (and time, I guess), there's a solution for you. An app called Couplet (www.coupletapp.com) was developed by a Ph.D named L. Sullivan to help betrothed pairs get ready for married life. The application goes for $4.99 and focuses on weekly exercises for couples to take stock in their relationship, and to figure out how to make their engagement about more than just getting ready for a wedding. iPhone, iPad and iTouch users will get relatively unobtrusive lessons and exercises a few times a week.
