3 Reasons Pre Marriage Counseling Works

Taking your relationship to the next level—marriage—is a big step. And it shouldn’t be taken lightly. That’s why pre marriage counseling exists. If you need help in thinking things through, having a talk with a pre-marriage counselor would help tremendously in getting you and your spouse in the best frame of mind right before you take that walk down the aisle. Saying I Do isn’t just about making sure you’ll love and cherish each other every day. It’s also about making and honoring a deeper commitment to each other, even on bad days, even when it’s hard. It’s about holding each other’s hand even when the going gets tough.
That’s marriage. When you enter into it, it’s not just about two people in love anymore. It’s about being each other’s family, having each other’s backs. It’s a tough job and you’ll need all the help you can get. That’s why a lot of couples go for pre marriage counseling. It’s one way to help them build a solid foundation for their future. Here are a few other benefits you can look forward to, according to the Huffington Post:

Pre Marriage Counseling Benefits

  • Coming up with marriage resolutions. It basically works the same as your New Year’s resolutions. You come up with a list of promises and try hard to honor each one when you enter your marriage. However, you and your partner might get off tangent when you start discussing money, kids, religion, and other serious issues. Having a marriage counselor there will help keep your discussions on track.
  • Setting expectations. If you and your partner have already talked about when you want to have kids or start buying a home, then that’s good. However, not all couples talk about these things. Some, then, are blindsided when they find out that the other partner doesn’t want kids while the other one does. That kind of disconnect can make or break a young marriage. With a marriage counseling session, you and your spouse have the freedom to talk about anything that’s on your mind.
  • Dealing with marital stress. Counseling also helps you and your partner pinpoint which behaviors or attitudes might cause each other stress. Have habits that drive your partner crazy? Then try to tone that down a bit. By knowing what behaviors and attitudes to avoid, you can keep the stress levels in your marriage within manageable levels.

So start your marriage on the right footing. For more information on pre marriage counseling services in New York, call us.
