The news is that premarital
counseling really works. It states that premarital counseling means that
couples have a higher chance of staying together in a successful marriage.
This is obviously a good thing for society. The study ultimately is
apparently a meta-statistical analysis. I strongly think that all
couples should get premarital counseling. However, I wonder if the study
is failing to take in to account that couples that would stay together at a
higher rate are more likely to stay together with or without the
counseling. I also wonder if the counseling caused some couples to fail to
get married. In any case, the usefulness of marriage counseling is clear.
