     When is a couple ready to get married?  In the past, one answer was that individuals must first do therapy and become emotionally mature before they should get married.  When I gave pre-marital counseling to couples and tried to use this answer, I found something unusual.  No couple I counseled seemed to meet this test, where both people had completley reached emotional maturity.  I discuss how I modified my approach in counseling engaged couples, changing the 'therapuetic' model that was unrealistic in its demands.

     Next time we will look at two closely related questions: How do you keep a marriage going? and How do you know when a marriage will no longer work?

 

This podcast series is based on my book The Six Faces of Love which can be viewed at craigowen.net
