Premarital Counseling

Preparing for Life Together | Benefits of Premarital Counseling 


Transitions can be some of the most exciting and overwhelming moments in our lives. Making the decision to get married can bring about a variety of emotions – love, happiness, hopefulness, nervousness, uncertainty for what this next chapter will look like. Oftentimes, after saying “yes” to spending forever with your partner, you dive right into planning mode for the day you’ll say “I do.” The engagement period becomes a time of prepping for the wedding day in addition to prepping for the rest of your lives together. With the busyness of life in general plus the amount thought that goes into wedding planning, it is sometimes easy to forget to prioritize the continual growth of your relationship before this big transition.


Premarital counseling is a proactive way in which you can process those pre-wedding emotions, dive deeper into understanding your partner, strengthen your communication and connection, and prepare for future marital decision making. Research has explored the various benefits of premarital counseling and found that couples who engaged in premarital counseling reported higher levels of relationship satisfaction. Premarital counseling provides a safe, supportive space for you and your partner to have conversations about various important topics (e.g., finances, parenting, lifestyle, family experiences, intimacy, politics, beliefs, etc.). Engaging in these conversations before marriage in the context of premarital counseling allows for you and your partner to preemptively hear each other’s perspectives on issues that will come up throughout your marriage and develop conflict resolution skills for those inevitable moments of disagreement. Learning how to openly communicate about your emotions, values, strengths, relationship needs, and life goals in premarital counseling, you and your partner can lay a strong foundation for building a nurturing, empathetic marriage.
