Princeton, West Virginia Author Publishes Premarital Counseling Book

By: PR Leap
( Premarital Counseling: A Biblical Model, a new book by Dr. Ray E. Hurt, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In recent years, the meaning of the family has become forgotten, and the value of marriage is skewed. With failing marriages and increasing divorce rates, the family has lost its importance in the betterment of society.

Premarital Counseling offers a solution to the problem. Offering counseling sessions before marriage helps couples to learn more about the expectations placed on them with regards to Scripture, as well as expectations each has for the other. This introduction to premarital counseling runs through various subjects from differences in communication style, financial planning, spiritual and physical intimacy, and the wedding day itself. In each section, author Ray Hurt offers suggestions and talking points for ministers during the counseling sessions. With these ideas in mind, the couple can exit the counseling sessions with the power to remind our society of the importance of marriage and the family.
