Be intentional about building a strong foundation for a successful marriage. Start now!
Who you marry is one of the most important decisions of your life. Marriage is not a fairy-tale dream. Rather, it is a marathon. I strongly believe that virtually any two people in the world can make a marriage succeed if they have the right tools.
Premarital counseling is not only for engaged couples, but also for couples exploring the prospect of a long-term relationship together.
We offer premarital counseling in a six-session format. Each session will last approximately fifty minutes. Topics that will be covered include:
- Honor and Respect
- Conflict Resolution
- Family of Origin
- Roles and Positions
- Decision Making
- Extended Family
Each couple will also take a Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI). This assessment does not “test” the couple’s relationship. On the other hand, it explores what makes each individual the way he/she is.
Premarital counseling is typically completed over the course of four to six one-hour sessions. If the counselor or couple thinks it is necessary for additional sessions, arrangements can be made at that time.
