Most couples just don't realize that good, skill-based pre-marriagee ducation can reduce the risk of divorce by up to thirty percent and lead to a significantly happier marriage, according to marriage research. It can also reduce the stress of the pre-wedding period. Just a little effort now can make your odds a whole lot better over the long run.
You want to do everything you can to ensure that your dreams of a great marriage and agreat life are realized. Pre-marriage preparation is based on the reality that it's important to strengthen your relationship and prepare constructively for future challenges and conflicts that everyone will inevitably face at some point in their marriage, now while you have so much fresh positive energy in your relationship. Don't stick your head in the sand. The research shows that there is a window of opportunity during the year before the wedding and the six months or so after when couples get the optimum benefit from marriage preparation. Later, under stress, negative habits and relationship patterns may become established and be much harder to resolve.
Our premarital program consists of couples taking a leading relationship inventory that assesses 14 areas of their relationship. This helps couples objectively identify their relationship strengths and growth areas. We then tailor the premarital education and counseling to your particular needs. Typically, all couples typically receive premarital counseling around the following topics:
- Communication and Solving Problems
- Sensuality and Sexuality in Marriage
- Understanding Power struggles
- What is the Role of A Husband and A Wife
- Keeping In-laws From being Outlaws
- And much more
