For pre-marriage, I offer a Prepare/Enrich evaluation they can take at home online. It indicates many relationship issues with a plan for dealing with them all. If they do not want to take Prepare/Enrich, I have an 8-week plan including many issues: handling money, conflict resolution, in-laws, parenting, sex, sharing chores, communication, commitment, personality inventory, expectations, relationship needs etc. Couples with problems can also be given Prepare/Enrich if they wish. I carefully hear both people and try to evaluate the basic concerns. I listen carefully and use logic, cognitive restructuring, exercises, homework, reading material uniquely designed for each couple.
