My husband and I were interested in taking this course and then came to the conclusion that we didn’t need it right away and that getting married right away was more necessary ( for us ). I bought the course and then emailed Dr. Justin D’Arienzo and told him I didn’t want to do the course right now after I seen the extent of it and asked him for a refund. He told me a refund would be given to me right away. As it was the weekend we didn’t get in into our bank until Tuesday morning but we got it. It wasn’t a headache for me to get which is the last thing we need right now. So thank you for Dr. Justin D’ Arienzo for listening to my needs and not causing me more unnecessary hassle in my life right now. We will take your course as it looks very beneficial to us as a couple and I don’t want to miss out on the knowledge it looks like it gives just because we need to get married right away( for personal reasons). So thank you and we see and appreciate all you do for Texas couples. I recommend anyone who has the time to take this course.
Dr. D' Arienzo is patient, kind, understanding and practical in his approach to patient care. He is skilled in diagnosing and treating a list of issues. From working with children to adult couples and individuals, Dr. D'Arienzo and his staff have my highest endorsement.
I misspelled my fiance's name. I requested an update Sunday morning at 12:38 AM. I had my new PDF premarital course certificate before 1:00 PM. The rapid response was not expected during the weekend, however very much appreciated.
My fiance and I took the premarital course offered by Dr. D'Arienzo and I cannot shut up about it! I went into the course with low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised at how helpful the resources were! The things that we have both learned in this course have helped us to understand each other better and prepared us to manage conflict more effectively.
I highly recommend this course to every couple that plans to go to the altar! This will be especially helpful for those that already cohabitate, as this course will give "faces and names" to many issues that all couples face.
