You're getting married. Yay!
You guys must be stoked! There's so much to think about – bridal showers, bachelor(ette) parties, wedding planning, registry, the honeymoon, and ten thousand other things. I bet you've got all kinds of Pinterest boards going. Most people spend lots of time, energy and money preparing for the wedding and forget entirely to prepare for the marriage.
You think ahead.
Chances are, if you're looking into premarital counseling, you are a forward thinker. Awesome! You may have heard of the benefits of premarital counseling (like the 30% decline in divorce rate over 5 years) or maybe it just seems logical to you. Premarital counseling will give you both the opportunity to give your marriage the right start – free of old resentments or ambiguity.
It's a marathon, not a sprint.
You wouldn't run a marathon without training or preparing – marriage shouldn't be any different. Premarital counseling provides you and your partner with a safe place to explore expectations, values, visions, conflict-resolution styles and more. You'll start your marriage with the tools necessary to have a satisfying, lifelong relationship.
