Why Should We Choose Pre-Marital Counseling?
It’s easy to get totally consumed with all the wedding planning, but what happens after the big day? Many couples are challenged with what happens after the excitement and honeymoon end, and they are left looking at each other with, “what now”? It is important for couples to have a plan on how they will work through their conflict, because as powerful as LOVE is, unfortunately it cannot settle our disagreements for us. With divorce rates around 50% it just doesn’t make sense for couples to take an added risk of not taking INTENTIONAL time out to focus on the relationship before marriage. So what can you expect in pre-marital counseling? The Toronto Sun reports that the divorce rate spikes in January. The top three causes cited are: poor communication, infidelity, and finances. You can plan on learning new skills that will help you learn how to fight fair, communicate respectively, understand each other’s money personality, create expectations for parenting styles, discuss household roles and responsibilities, learn each other’s love languages, and intimacy. I like to offer my couples an engaging, interactive, honest, and safe environment. Pre-marital counseling can help you and your partner create a plan that works for both of you, that is realistic and healthy.
Already Married, or Re-marrying? It’s never too late to take some time out for your relationship!
