Premarital Counseling and Therapy – Counselors in Chesterfield

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Planning a wedding is a very exciting time. It can also be a very stressful time, complete with guest list negotiations, meeting in-laws, paying for a reception and honeymoon, and creating new living arrangements. This can create a great deal of strife for even the happiest of couples.

In some religious traditions, pastors or priests may require counseling before they will perform the ceremony. This is done to ensure that a couple is serious about marriage, and has considered the many factors involved. In some states, premarital counseling is required by law for those wanting to get married before the age of 18.

Whether premarital counseling is required or not, it is always helpful. There are so many issues to discuss when building a marriage, and possibly a new family together. You are expressing care and concern for the future marriage by participating in counseling and discussing these issues ahead of time.

A Chesterfield Thriveworks premarital counselor will help you and your partner discuss many of these points of contention in advance. These may include:

  • Role expectations, such as for household duties
  • Communication styles
  • Religion and worship attendance
  • Budget, finances, and debt
  • Number of children, if any
  • Parenting and discipline styles
  • Expectations for intimacy
  • Needs for space and privacy
  • Location of home and jobs
  • Holiday expectations and travel
  • Relationships with extended family and in-laws

Simply reading this list can feel overwhelming! Most of these things will come up in every marriage. It is smart to discuss them before they become stressful and immediate. Planning ahead for potential points of differences can make a huge impact in your future marriage.
