EngagedĀ  couples often run down of checklist of things they need for their wedding ceremony.

Reception hall. Check.

Flowers. Check.

Limousine and DJ. Check.

However, National Association of Social Workers member Clio Garland, MSW, LCSW, who was interviewed for this Huffington Post article, said couples should also discuss and agree on a checklist of issues that could emotionally derail the wedding.

These issues include how they will deal with potential family conflicts (do your parents think you are too young?), finances, and setting proper boundaries to keep family and friends from meddling too much in the proceedings.

Social workers help clients build stronger ties to their mates, family members and friends. To learn more visit the National Association of Social Workers “Help Starts Here” Relationships website.
