Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church Senior Pastor Michael R. Sumbry uses the “speaker-listener” technique in his premarital counseling sessions. When couples say no to counseling, he says, he doesn’t feel comfortable performing the ceremony “because they’ve demonstrated an unwillingness to explore some issues, to take on some tools that will help you in that relationship.” (Jim Thompson/Albuquerque Journal)
