Pre-Cana Seminar, Priest Interview, to name a few.

Requirements before the actual marriage itself are handful of seminars.

One seminar is from the Municipal health department where they'll promote condom to shutdown population growth. Another seminar is from the parish church where couples are to be bound. This is called pre-cana seminar. Now why it is called pre-Cana....

Pre-Cana is a course or consultation Catholic couples must undergo before they can be married in a Catholic church. The name is derived from John 2:1-12, the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee, where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine.

Approaches to Pre-Cana vary among Catholic parishes. In some cases the couple is interviewed by a priest, who tries to ascertain whether the couple has avoided pre-marital sex, and whether they intend to have children and raise them Catholic. Source.

At church seminar, the cathecists were saying that using condom is a sin. Philippine government says, go ahead and use condom. Church says, avoid condom. Talk about separation of the state and church.

While we were in the condom topic, we were discussing the different flavors of condom. Not because I have substantial knowledge of the condom flavors (Mercury and 7-11 have condoms at cash register/cashiers/counters), but I was the one who managed to impart the most numbers of flavors available to date. Banana, chocolate and strawberry to name a few. What would have been nice I said, is if they could make a durian flavored condom. Or much better, durian themed condom. Spikes included!

Also, another good flavor that these Trust-Chemists could dish out is, Buko-Pandan flavor. What a refreshing condom flavor it could be. Only thing to do then, is to get a buko-pandan loving girlfriend and your in luck.

The interviews and seminars aint over. Next up is the canonical interview. Where, the parish priest will get a chance to know the couple.

To cap it all, the all-time favorite… can't skip the seminar from the future in-laws. "Mag-sumikap ka," they'll quip. Nicey-nice-nice.
