Many dream about doing it, some plan for it, are you ready for it? With divorce rates
continuing to increase, you may want to take some preventative measures to help your relationship. Here are some situations in which you and your partner may
benefit from pre-marital counseling:
1. When neither one of you have been married before or if you have been
been dating for what one or both of you consider a short amount of time. Often
times with these type of marriages, one or both of the partners are still trying to
get to know him/herself as well as how they interact with others. Pre-marital
counseling can be tailored so that the couple may discuss cultural and religious
differences and how these differences may impact their marriage. Further, the
couple may explore mutual expectations around children, daily life routines and
even sex drives.
2. When you and your fiancé feel that your engagement period has been too long. You
may benefit from counseling to address issues around what may be preventing you
from becoming married.
3. If you and your partner are not able to effectively resolve conflict. Most couples
argue from time to time but when arguments become a way in which you resolve
conflicts, you many benefit from sessions to learn how to problem solve in a
more productive way.
