Most people test out products before making a significant purchase. Many people also make sure to receive years of education before selecting a profession. Yet, some people decide to get married without any hesitation.
After all, if you’re married and feel like you’ve found the love of your life, it is common to feel so excited and energized by the future that you rush into things. All often, though, conflict and challenges arise and people find themselves without the skills to properly handle marital problems. This is where premarital counseling comes in. Before marital conflict arises, premarital counseling helps you create a strong foundation with your spouse so that your relationship remains healthy, strong, and fulfilling.
My Role as a Premarital Counselor
As a pre marriage counselor, I am prepared to guide through conversations that provide you with the chance to talk openly. During these conversations, we will address your communication and attachment style as well how you handle conflict, emotional closeness to your future spouse, strengths and challenges in your daily life, sexual intimacy, finances, the possibility of children, and relationships with extended family. These conversations are intensive to make sure that I have a full understanding of the challenges that might exist in your future marriage.
The Value of a Relationship Assessment
One of the most important parts of the pre-marital counseling process is the Prepare / Enrich assessment, which identifies a couple’s strengths and growth areas. This assessment is one of the most widely used methods in premarital counseling and education. Some of the major goals of our prepare-enrich program include:
- Developing a more balanced relationship
- Discussing budgeting and financial planning
- Establishing personal and relationship goals
- Exploring growth and strength areas
- Identifying any stressors in the relationships
- Strengthening communication skills
- Using a ten step model to help with the resolution of conflict
The test will be completed individually and its feedback will then be discussed during two to six sessions. During this process, both you and your future spouse will likely discover things about yourself, your relationship, the benefits of being in a long-term relationship, and how you can make a long-term relationship work for you.
