Today, 40-50 percent of married couples are ending in divorce and statistics continue to climb (American Psychological Association). The drive of premarital counseling is to prepare couples for anticipating problems, communicate over wide-ranged topics and provide hope for the future. Learning what obstacles to avoid ahead of time and how to maneuver through them as a team can help a couple maintain stability. Observing one another’s family history, traditions, learned behaviors and combining them to suit each other’s household helps weave out any unwanted actions. Setting up boundaries and analyzing what goals you both wish to pursue helps keep the expectations on right track. Premarital counseling allows you to explore what expectations, morals, and beliefs that the both of you value and will apply in your home foundation.
Benefits of premarital counseling include but not limited to:
- Problem shooting skills
- Build a healthy foundation
- Trauma resolution
- Goal and boundary setting
- Manage conflict
- Realistic expectations
- Secure relationships
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person”
