The First Dance offers

Premarital Counseling By State

Marriage Preparation options through books, classes, games


There are many ways to strengthen your upcoming marriage through premarriage counseling. The First Dance is proud to present a wide variety of premarital counseling and marriage preparation options from interactive books, an online, research-based, international premarital inventory, individual counselors, a money attitudes assessment, and more. See non-counselor options on the right.


We have a list of highly experienced, licensed marriage therapists through a national marriage therapy directory co-founded by Bill Doherty, along with other people who do marriage preparation with engaged couples. We also have a TELEPHONE listing if we don't have someone in your area or if you and your fiance aren't even living in the same state. There are also premarital classes in some states.
