Has anyone had success with online 100% virtual premarital education? Was it found helpful by you and your spouse? I’ve been married before and did religious premarital counseling and did not find it helpful. The deacon was not good at it at all. Were you also able to get a discount on your marriage license doing this?
We didn't fo any premarital counseling. That being said, we had lived together for 5 years prior to marriage and already had a shared account for living expenses, talked about all sorts of financial and other short/long term goals, and I am in grad school to become a psychologist, so I kind of know the types of things discussed in these contexts. An online program or book can be helpful if you put in the work. The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John M. Gottman, PhD is a book my old supervisor recommends for couples. There are some others out there, but I don't remember them off the top of my head. Others hopefully will chime in with their recommendations.
