Preparing couples for happy and long lasting marriages.
Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
Most couples spend more time and money planning their weddings than preparing for their marriages. And, most marriages end in divorce! Doesn’t it make sense to Prepare yourselves as best you can for the most important human relationship you will ever have?
Premarital Counseling is highly recommended for couples planning to marry. Premarital education and marriage skills training are necessary for marital stability. It is beyond any doubt that the happily married couples live longer and are emotionally stable. Children enjoy stable family environment, and they experience fewer social problems
Our premarital therapy program is designed to help couples get their marriage off to a great start and motivate them to continue to develop a strong marriage. The program includes taking the PREPARE premarital inventory and receiving feedback during counseling sessions. The PREPARE/ENRICH is a program based on a set of five inventories that examine major relationship issues a couple may experience.
A strong marriage positively effects each person’s happiness, physical health and emotional wellbeing. A strong marriage is also the foundation of strong families and healthy communities. A vital step in building a strong marriage is to prepare for it by participating in a high quality premarital program.
This program will enable you and your partner to:
- Explore your relationship strength and growth areas
- Strengthen your communication skills, including assertiveness and active listening
- Resolve your conflicts using the “Ten Steps Procedure”
- Explore your relationship & families-of-origin issues with the “Family and Couple Map”
- Develop a workable budget and financial plan
- Develop your personal, couple and family goals
If the couple desires, additional sessions may be added in order to deal more deeply with a particular interest or need. Also, individual counseling may be incorporated in the process to deal with personal issues.
