Premarital Couples Counseling Services

Marriage is a commitment between two people that may have different views on many issues. Premarital counseling is a type of relationship therapy that helps prepare couples to enter into a long-term commitment. This type of counseling focuses on helping couples develop a strong and healthy relationship before marriage and identify any potential problems that might lead to issues down the road.

Premarital counseling helps partners improve communication, set realistic expectations and develop conflict resolution skills. By gaining relationship skills you and your partner can ensure that you have a strong, healthy relationship and a better chance for a stable and satisfying marriage. 

Some of the relationship issues that might be addressed during premarital counseling include:

  • Values and beliefs
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Sex and affection
  • Finances
  • Communication
  • Desire to have children
  • Decision making
  • Dealing with anger
  • Time spent together/apart
  • Parenting choices
  • Family relationships

As challenging as premarital counseling can be, this type of counseling can be a good way to establish realistic expectations and develop healthy communication skills that will set a marriage off to a good start.
