Marriage information services are free if you belong to any of the traditional church groups in the United States. The priest or pastor will invite you and your spouse into his office and prepare you to reenter the body of his church as a couple. The information that he gives you will have to do with the religious teachings of the church that he represents and obviously that you belong to. The marriage information that he gives you will have to do with child rearing and other matters that are important to the church. If you do not belong to any of the traditional church groups, you can still get marriage information services from a professional counselor who might also be licensed as a marriage counselor. These services are not free since you are taking up the time of a professional marriage counselor. However, his or her services might prove to be very valuable as you might be able to work out some issues before you get married that you might not have even considered since the time prior to marriage is usually over charged with enthusiasm, stress and some confusion. Visiting a professional marriage counselor before getting married might be the smartest money that you have ever spent. A marriage counselor might be able to bring up issues concerning marriage like finances and joint accounts that either or both future married partners might be afraid to bring up prior to marriage.
