Elaine Taylor, a relationship counsellor from the charity, said: "It's a very much more proactive approach. It's a way of anticipating challenges head on. It's preventative. It's more a way of life than a problem. And it's just a different kind of gift."

The idea was sparked when a couple who married last year put counselling sessions with Relate on their wedding gift list.
