Premarital Counseling

Every engaged couple dreams of entering into a loving, committed marriage and living happily ever after. The wedding day passes, the honeymoon ends, and the strains of life begin to set in. Currently, a little over half of all first marriages end in divorce and those who marry without having premarital counseling are at a much higher risk.

Premarital counseling is the preparation period before a couple says “I do”.  It allows couples to explore and identify the difficulties that may lie ahead on the road of marriage, teaching them skills to overcome these barriers. Some of these include:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Challenges originating from family backgrounds
  • Marital role expectation
  • Intimacy and sexuality
  • Compatibility
  • Financial preparation
  • Communication skills
  • Future goals and plans
