What is Premarital Therapy
Premarital 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. This kind of counseling can also help you identify weaknesses that could become problems during marriage.
Understanding Premarital Therapy
Premarital counseling can help couples improve their relationships before marriage. You’ll be encouraged to discuss topics related to marriage, such as:
- Beliefs and values
- Roles in marriage
- Affection and sex
- Desire to have children
- Family relationships
- Dealing with anger
- Time spent together
In premarital counseling sessions, couples have the chance to explore topics like finances, children, and intimacy—three areas where many couples experience challenges.
Partners can also develop communication and conflict resolution skills and address any fears they might have about marriage, whether these concerns result from one’s personal relationship history, family background, or otherwise.
There is no particular length of therapy.
Sessions are usually around 50 minutes.
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 down the road.
Usually, each of you will be asked to separately answer a written questionnaire to determine how you feel about each another and the relationship. Together, you and your counselor will interpret your results and discuss areas of common unhappiness or disagreement.
In addition, your counselor might ask you and your partner questions to find out your unique visions for your marriage and clarify your expectations and desires for your marriage
Why Should I Choose Premarital Therapy
Premarital counseling can help partners identify areas likely to cause conflict later on—finances, child-rearing methods, career goals, and family dynamics, among others—and either work through these issues in the early stages of the relationship, if possible, or develop a plan to address them in the years to come.From Source.
