Pre-marriage counseling – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

So you’re ready to take the next step in your relationship? Congratulations! You popped the question, said “Yes,” and now the rush is on to set a date and get married. There’s so much to do and so little time. It can be both stressful and joyous at the same time. You have a list so you don’t forget a single detail.

  • Tuxedo – check
  • Wedding cake – check
  • Reserve the church – check
  • Hire a caterer – check
  • Plan the honeymoon – check
  • Schedule premarital counseling – ?

Have you scheduled premarital counseling yet? Maybe you’ve never thought of it before. If you plan to have a faith-based ceremony, maybe you’ve been encouraged to participate in premarital counseling – possibly even be required to do so. If you’ve considered it, you may have wondered, “Is premarital counseling necessary?” Or, “Is premarital counseling worth it?”

While it’s generally not a requirement for getting married, it’s a pretty good idea for most couples. Premarital counseling provides couples with a safe and structured time to discuss issues that may come up at the beginning of a marriage. With the aid of a pre-marriage counselor, you’ll develop strategies for addressing these issues in a positive and constructive manner. Premarital counseling gives new couples an opportunity to build a solid foundation for a lasting and meaningful relationship.

What can I expect from premarital counseling?

This is an excellent question. Many newly engaged couples don’t know what to expect from their marriage. They just know that they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together – maybe even start a family one day. But there’s a lot more than “love” that goes into a happy and meaningful marriage. Your pre-marriage counselor will help you discuss:

  • Communication styles
  • Conflict resolution
  • Roles of each partner
  • Sexuality and intimacy
  • Family dynamics (in-laws, siblings, extended family)
  • Children (if you want them, how many?)
  • Where to live
  • How to manage finances (including debts)
  • Religious expectations
  • Political values

At Thriveworks Premarital Counseling of Greenville, we value the bond of marriage. We partner with couples to help them build a firm foundation that will last a lifetime. Premarital counseling is a safe place to discuss your hopes and dreams – and even your reservations about marriage.
