What is Premarital Counseling?

Premarital counseling is a type of relationship therapy that helps couples build healthier relationships and prepare them for a loving and strong marriage. A professional and experienced counselor will work with both you and your partner to discuss and resolve any issues or weaknesses in your relationship before you tie the knot. Many couples may feel embarrassed to do premarital counseling. However, it is nothing to be ashamed of. Premarital counseling will help you have a more stable relationship that oftentimes lasts longer than couples who don’t work through their problems.

What is the Process?

Every relationship has disagreements and issues that need to be worked on. However, some couples may push these problems aside and think that marriage may make everything better. This is very wrong. If you are in a relationship that has persistent issues, you should work through those and resolve them before getting married. In premarital counseling, you and your partner will work with a licensed counselor and talk through different disagreements you may face in your relationship. The following are some of the most common topics discussed:

  • Finances
  • Beliefs 
  • Communication
  • Family
  • Anger management
  • Whether they want kids or not
  • Intimacy
  • Marriage Expectations
  • & more.
