Are you planning to get married soon OR have you recently gotten engaged?

Marriage is a major milestone in a person’s life. Although everyone aspires to make the significant commitment to marry their love, it is so  important that an individual realize that the decision to marry should not be taken lightly. 73% +marriages fail each year, even more shocking is that 1/2 of those marriages do not even make it past the 5th year. Divorce rates have skyrocketed through recent decades, and this is definite proof that one should really consider every relationship idiosyncrasy that goes along with the ultimate commitment of “til death do us part.”

 

What Is Pre-Marital Counseling?

Counseling Services Direct for premarital counseling with offices located in Long Island can help you by providing insight into what to expect when considering marriage. In addition, some ministers, preachers, priests, and other spiritual advisers may require a couple to attend premarital counseling before accepting to administer the wedding ceremony. We  have established a credible reputation with other clients who have consulted us with their premarital concerns.

Pre-marital counseling is a type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage. Premarital counseling can help ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship — giving you a better chance for a stable and satisfying marriage. Premarital counseling can also help you identify weaknesses that could become bigger problems during marriage.

Premarital counseling helps couples improve their relationships before marriage. Through premarital counseling, couples are encouraged to discuss a wide range of important and intimate topics related to marriage, such as:

  • Financesmarriage and money
  • Communication
  • Beliefs and values
  • Roles in marriage
  • Affection and sex
  • Children and parenting
  • Family relationships
  • Decision making
  • Dealing with anger
  • Time spent together

Premarital counseling helps partners improve their ability to communicate, set realistic expectations for marriage and develop conflict-resolution skills. In addition, premarital counseling can help couples establish a positive attitude about seeking help with their marriages down the road.

Keep in mind that you bring your own values, opinions and personal history into a relationship, and they might not always match your partner’s. In addition, many people go into marriage believing it will fulfill their social, financial, sexual and emotional needs — and that’s not always the case. By discussing differences and expectations before marriage, you and your partner can better understand and support each other during marriage. Early intervention is important because the risk of divorce is highest early in marriage.
