First counseling, then the altar?
(2007-03-20)LINCOLN, NE (NET Radio) - If State Senator Mark Christensen of Imperial has his way, couples will need to sit down and talk before they get married. For at least eight hours, to be exact. His bill before the Judiciary Committee would have couples meet with a marriage counselor about conflict management, communication, financial responsibility, and parenting skills. Not going to class would force couples to wait 30 days for their marriage licenses and pay a 100 dollar fee instead of 15. Al Riskowski of the Nebraska Family Council says couples that are serious about marriage will embrace the idea. © Copyright 2021, NET Radio
