Why do people have to take a Pre-Marriage Test?


Is the institution of marriage becoming obsolete? Is it just a piece of paper that couples can just sign at their wedding ceremony?

What is a premarital test

The pre-marriage test is a way of determining whether or not two people are ready for marriage. It usually takes the form of a questionnaire or a series of interviews. The pre-marriage test has been around for a long time and used to be mandatory in some countries. Even though it is not as popular today, many couples still take it before they commit to marrying one another.

Do all religions require that you get a premarital test?

Some religions require a premarital test. The religion determines what type of tests are required. For example, Catholics require a two hour course on marriage and family life before you can be married in the church.

How accurate is the test?

Pre-marriage tests can be administered anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks before the wedding. The test relies on detecting a chemical, called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). hCG is produced by the body during pregnancy. A urine sample taken at any point in time can detect whether or not someone is pregnant, but only 3 to 4 weeks before the wedding will it tell you if they are still pregnant.


These pre-marriage tests help people make sure they’re marrying someone who is compatible and ready to commit to a life together. They also help people avoid marrying someone with a criminal background or people that have sexually transmitted diseases.
