You're finally engaged. The moment you've dreamed of is in sight. You can't wait to share your life with your love. But at the back of your mind, you wonder if your marriage will be a happy one. Will you make the same mistakes that your parents and friends did? Your biggest fear is being stuck in an unhealthy marriage.
You've heard that marriage comes with ups and downs, but you're not sure if you're ready for the unseen. You wish there was a way to know that your marriage will be a great one.
Well, before you pick out your dream dress and book a location, do you and your partner have all your bases covered? There are so many important questions many premarital or engaged couples fail to ask each other-and that is probably why so many marriages end up in disaster. Have you discussed finances, religion, who will raise the kids in the event that something happens to you or your spouse? Where will you spend holidays? How will you handle disagreements? What role will your families play? Do you know how your partner's past will affect your relationship? How to handle disagreements? What unresolved baggage are you bringing into the relationship? Let's work on saving your marriage before it begins.
Think about it- the average wedding costs tens of thousands of dollars, but the average couple completely overlooks premarital counseling. Premarital counseling costs less than 5% of your entire wedding budget.
Here are some areas we will cover in our premarital counseling sessions:
Pinpointing your areas of strength
Strengthening your growth areas
How your family background will affect your marriage
Your personality profile
Sex, affection and leisure activities
Children and parenting
Find out what problems might occur and fix them now so you can have a peaceful, harmonious marriage.
As part of my premarital counseling sessions, I use the Prepare-Enrich assessment. It is a comprehensive, customized report that gives me targeted information about areas you and your partner would potentially disagree about in the future. So we're not stabbing in the dark. This 27-page report lets me know specifically what areas will be a challenge for you. Premarital counseling sessions can also be done online over the computer.
