    It would be greatly beneficial if part of chosson/kallah classes comes a package of 3-4 sessions with a marriage therapist. 2 session before wedding And 2 spread out after wedding.
    I think this can help avoid many aggravations later on in life…

    Wow!

    This is one of the most amazing, proactive ideas to help shidduchim that I’ve ever seen. You have an incredible zchus. If even one person is helped through this, it will be to your eternal credit that they were able to establish a binyan adei ad. Thank you!

    We are shadchanim. We are the most maligned group in lubavit ch. Have you ever considered that we were people too. All Shadchanim that I know are doing lekadesh Shem shamayim. I didn’t go into this business for the money, a laughable concept. I do not deserve this constant animosity from so called “therapists”. May we merit the coming of the geulah haamitis vehashleima bekorav veyameinu amen!

    Yes it should be implemented. Without a question. Anyone giving chosson / kallah classes should really take this on board

    Shadchanim are not being subject to animosity ch’v, and for sure not from this article. The fact is that it’s difficult to be frank and share one’s doubts and insecurities with a shadchan because the shadchan also represents the other side and and revealing one self too much may hurt one’s chances, etc, unnecessarily. That’s what was meant in the article.
    Kol hakavod rabbi Druin for so generously offering your time and expertise

    I think your comment explains too clearly why people prefer to speak to a professional and licensed therapist then a shadchan. Thank you for highlighting his point so eloquently. Thank you Shmuel Druin for offering this tremendous support, much hatzlacha!

    if you didn’t go into this for the money, how come most Shadchins won’t even to talk to you unless you pay them something up front. nice article. Thank you Rabbi Druin
