Explore Premarital Counseling
Ensure that when you take that big step, that you and your partner are on the same page. Many couples are not on the same page and as time goes on, resentments can accumulate. Partners begin to play out a “script” they learned, typically from their own families they grew up in, and that may be a wonderful harmonious script or one that isn’t very functional. Premarital therapy involves meeting with a therapist or counselor before partners deepen commitment to ensure there is a solid understanding and foundation to have that commitment get off to a strong start.
Premarital counseling focuses on helping couples compromise and connect over:
- Child rearing
- Relationships with the in-laws
- Love languages
- Physical Affection
- Work/life balance
- Retirement goals
- Shared dreams
