What Is Premarital Counseling?

Premarital counseling is a form of therapy that aims to help couples best prepare their relationship for marriage. Premarital counseling, or as some call it pre marriage counseling, can give you and your partner the very best shot at marriage, as it will help you to build a strong, healthy relationship prior to tying the knot.

Premarital counseling is typically led by marriage and family therapists who are licensed providers. These professionals can also conduct marriage counseling and couples therapy; they have received degrees in counseling and some have worked to receive credentialing from the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). In addition, some people choose to receive premarital counseling through their church.

How Can Premarital Counseling Help My Relationship?

The premarital counselors at our office can help you and your fiancé (or significant other) strengthen your relationship prior to marriage. This form of therapy proves to help a variety of couples, including those who are engaged to be married as well as those who are still exploring the idea of marriage. In any case, the following is often discussed in premarital counseling:

  • Financial situation
  • State of communication
  • Morals and values
  • Marital roles
  • Sex and intimacy
  • Desire to have kids
  • Conflict resolution
  • Valuable time together

In a nutshell, premarital counseling can help couples to improve pathways of communication, discuss plans for the future, and resolve conflict well. Additionally, premarital counseling can equip couples with the tools needed to work through future issues that may arise.
