Premarital Counseling. Helping couples succeed from the get-go. Because it IS one of the most important decisions of your life.
So, you just got that ring on your finger. –Congratulations to you both!
As you think about THE day, you may have butterflies in your stomach, just like they talk about in the movies. You lose the ground under your own feet from sheer joy when you think about your wedding.
You imagine what it will be like walking down the aisle – how the room will look, what your guests will say and how they will love the food. Because maybe you always cared about food. And if it’s not food, then it’s the decorations. And if not that, maybe it’s the colors.
There are so many things you like about the person you just agreed to marry. So much about them and their character that makes you leap with joy. You find yourself thinking to yourself, I must be the luckiest person in the world to be walking hand-in-hand with my Love.
But then, some days, when your mind isn’t going in a hundred different directions, you end up thinking that there are questions you don’t really know how to ask. Maybe you want to bring up something deep or painful from your past but there never seems to be ‘just the right time’. You might have differences of opinion in certain areas and some of them perhaps concern you more than others.
It’s easy to get caught up in the business (and busyness) of planning your wedding. And though you were warned a million times over, you still thought that you would never find yourself between a rock and a hard place. Maybe it’s a conversation that you have been dreading for a while now. Should we have kids or how many? Where you we going to live? Or how you were hoping to work or work from home or a combination of the two.
All the while, somewhere deep down you KNOW you two need to talk about these things.
Premarital counseling offers a chance for both of you to do just that; an opportunity to talk about difficult things. Premarital counseling is about three things:
1. Being smart
2. Being proactive
3. Being intentional
It’s about being responsible and wanting the best possible outcome for your relationship long-term.
If it feels like you don’t have a manual, that’s because — guess what? Nobody’s got one. You two are unique and your marriage won’t be quite like any other marriage relationship out there.
So, if you are looking to have the difficult conversations as well as see what your strengths and weak points are so that you can build your marriage on a firm foundation – You have come to the right place.
