MANILA, Philippines  — The Makati City government has launched an online pre-marriage counseling program for couples applying for a marriage license.

The Makati Social Welfare Department (MSWD) would accommodate up to 15 couples during pre-marriage counseling sessions that would be done through video conferencing.

Couples should have a stable internet connection with minimum speed of five mbps, an account on web conferencing app WebEx, a computer with a webcam and microphone. They would be required to wear presentable attire during the online counseling, the city government said in a statement yesterday.

Couples should call the MSWD and provide their contact number and email address. Registration and confirmation of the dates of their counseling sessions would be sent to the email address.

Makati City Mayor Abby Binay said the online pre-marriage counseling is one of the city government’s public services available through the use of technology.

“We intend to continuously innovate and reinvent our systems and processes. In these uncertain times, we must always be a step ahead to remain responsive to the needs of our constituents, and be able to provide quality services even during a crisis,” the mayor stressed.

The city government launched last June free wedding ceremonies, officiated by Binay at the Washington Sycip Park in Legaspi Village each week.
