Successful relationships don’t just happen. They need to be tended to and supported, just like anything else worth having.
You put so much time, energy and resources into the physical aspects of the marriage (rings, engagement, wedding), why not put an equal amount into ensuring your future life together?
Just like you wouldn’t expect to have a brilliant career without first educating yourself and doing the work. The same is true for having a wonderful, harmonious marriage.
Premarital counseling helps partners improve their ability to communicate with each other. It will help set realistic expectations for marriage.
And, you will develop conflict-resolution skills that support a healthy, strong marriage.
By discussing differences and expectations before marriage, you and your partner can better understand and support each other during the marriage.
