Who are you to tell me how to operate my relationship? Do you have a science of relationships to fall back on? if some religious person tried to force their religious preconception of relationships on me I'd be belligerent every class. If I was told I couldn't get married I'd fight, physically, all those oppressing me.
I did a premarital course and, since I had already been living with my wife for two and a half years, I learned nothing. I already knew her quirks, I knew what pet peeves she would set off and I knew what bad habits (in my opinion) she had, and I knew that I could live with them and would be happier with her in my life than otherwise. The course cost time and money, and I gained nothing. I don't mean that they are universally pointless, but they shouldn't be mandatory.
