    Marvelous Marriage.

    The Marriage Counselor by Tyler Perry is an informative play. It offers insight into how to keep your marriage strong and healthy. Viewers receive advice on how to communicate effectively with their husband or wife. If you have seen other Tyler Perry works you know the lesson or lessons to be learned are offered through comedy, therefore you are sure to experience some LOL moments as the storyline unfolds. A favorable review: this play is helpful, insightful, and informative. The "old school" songs for igniting your romance were great.

    Marriage Counselor

    Regarding of how funny Tyler Perry's plays are there's a point that hits home with everyone. It's amazing how much we take for granted until we see our stories on screen and then we realize if we just took the time to be honest with one another and kept God first we wouldn't be in the situations we often find ourselves in, we'd be better than. Thank you Mr. Perry for another humorous yet thought provocating play. God Bless
