We don’t need premarital counseling, do we?
There’s a common misconception that going to counseling means there is something wrong with your relationship. The truth is that most engaged couples are happy with their partner and are having no doubts about their shared future together. Typically, couples seek out premarital counseling to get educated and prepare for the common challenges of marriage. They want to know their areas of strengths and where they have potential for growth. They care deeply about their relationship and want to intentionally create a strong and satisfying marriage.
A lot of thought and planning goes into a wedding, but what about the marriage?
Sites, themes, catering, the dress… The list can go on and on, and frankly be a big source of anxiety and stress. You’re putting a lot of time, effort and energy into making sure that your wedding day is everything you want it to be.
(Or maybe you’re chucking it all and eloping.)
What happens after that?
Most couples spend more time and money planning their wedding than they do their marriage. Research shows that having a satisfying marriage can positively effect a person’s happiness, their career, even their longevity. A strong relationship also creates the foundation for a growing family.
