The aim of this article is to examine the distinct character of pastorally-orientated marriage counselling in contrast to psychologically-orientated marriage counselling. The conclusions arrived at is that whereas pastoral marriage counselling aims at the edification of the congregation certain other marriage enrichment programmes do not provide adequate Scripturally-founded perspectives. The inherent character of marriage as revealed in Scripture is considered and an attempt is made to extract certain guidelines for pastoral marriage counselling. The focal point, however, remains the edification of the congregation by the pastorate. Bearing this in mind basic outlines from Scripture are given within which pastoral counselling can function in practice.
