DENVER (KDVR) – Should marriage counseling be a requirement for you to tie the knot? A group in Colorado wants to make it mandatory.

Some churches already require couples to go through counseling, but this proposal would require all couples to attend counseling before they tie the knot, regardless of where they are married in the state of Colorado.

The proposal would require 10 hours of classes if it’s your first marriage, 20 for second marriages and 30 hours for third marriages.

The group is currently trying to get enough signatures to get it on an upcoming ballot.

    Where is the outrage from the freedom lovers to this government intrusion into private lives?

    A group wants to make it mandatory by putting it on the ballot for a vote so that the majority can rule private lives. No wonder the cannabis shops have lines into the street.

    Just another revenue measure, as a license has nothing to do with getting marriage!
