Premarital Counseling Helps Create a Roadmap for Your Relationship


Couples want to make sure their relationship is as strong as possible before beginning the new chapter of their lives together. They want to assure that unresolved discord, family of origin issues or religious or cultural issues are cleared up and healed.  Above all, couples want to open up and understand as many of their dynamics as possible in order to have a roadmap when things get tough.

Some go into marriage thinking it will fix their personal issues and heal their internal struggles.


There are still some that believe that the troubles in romantic partnerships will solve themselves upon getting married. The truth is, marriage won’t make your problems go away and your issues will still be there now the added pressure of making the marriage work.

Marriage only magnifies the issues that are present prior to getting married. Whatever dynamics or conflicts—feeling lonely, not knowing how to ask for what you want, unfulfilled sex, communication issues, parenting differences, anger, poor finances, fighting—will be there after the wedding ceremony and more times, then not, only get worse. Couples therapy when dating can help you work through potential issues before marriage.

Couples Therapy When Dating Helps You Prepare


Couples therapy when dating or preparing for marriage helps couples to prepare and have strong and healthy relationships, thereby giving them a greater chance of enjoying a stable, satisfying marriage where both can grow together.

When differences and expectations are discussed in a safe and contained space, the partnership can develop ways to understand and support each other based on openness and vulnerability.

Couples therapy when dating also assists couples to develop conflict-resolution skills. Partners are able to enhance their ability to communicate and establish realistic expectations rather than base on misunderstandings or poor communication.
