Dr. John Patrick Keefe II, the Reverend Glenna Sue Voegle and other licensed ministers of Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies are pleased to offer premarital counseling services in Oklahoma, for all couples seeking to get married! Any couple wanting to get married in any state can now come to Oklahoma and ask for our services!

As you know, many people get married far too quickly without really knowing what a huge commitment married life entails! Many brides and grooms never discuss important and even seemingly insignificant matters before tying the knot with marriage. They do not discuss roles, expectations, kids, jobs, money, and so much more. This is where premarital counseling can come in really handy and be extra beneficial to a couple and any children they might have! 

Couples looking to get married get the opportunity to sit down together with a minister who is licensed in the State of Oklahoma to discuss your new nuptial plans with premarital counseling. The following are just a few of the many things you will get to explore in premarital counseling with your licensed minister in Oklahoma:

  • Is getting married in Oklahoma a good idea?
  • Is getting married to my future spouse a bad idea?
  • Who is going to take out the trash?
  • How much time do you both plan on spending together?
  • What shall we do with our finances?
  • What happens if our close relatives get sick and need to move in with us?
  • How do we handle stress?
  • What is our parenting style going to be?
  • If I have been married before, what caused our previous marriages to end in divorce?
  • What kind of toothpaste and toilet paper are we going to use?

These are just a few of the many topics you will have the benefit of exploring with your premarital counselor! Premarital counseling in Oklahoma is such a wonderful idea, because so many people get married and divorced far too easily and quickly.

There are so many benefits that couples that choose the premarital counseling option receive, and some of these include but are not limited to, the following:





  • Find Out Why You Are Getting Married.
  • Discover What The Benefits & Challenges Of Marriage Are.

The State of Oklahoma will allow all couples that engage in premarital counseling through Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies to obtain their wedding licenses for only $5!

Premarital counseling with Dr. John Patrick Keefe II and other licensed ministers in Oklahoma via Lifelong Wedding Ceremonies can really pay off even more in the long run!
