Premarital counseling

Who doesn’t experience worry and doubts before tying the knot? Our anxiety is well grounded – while we all grow up with the notion of “happily ever after” – over half of marriages end in divorce and half of all spouses engage in extramarital affairs. And many of those who do remain married become estranged, disconnected or ridden with conflict. Just like every entrepreneur needs to do his or her due diligence before starting a new venture, every couple should get skills based premarital counseling before walking down the aisle. In fact, research shows that premarital counseling can reduce the risk of divorce by up to thirty percent and lead to a more fulfilled, happier marriage. When the honeymoon is over and the period of passionate love, known in psychological literature as limerence, ends many couples begin to feel that they are falling out of love. In our premarital counseling sessions we address issues such as communication, conflict resolution, perspective taking, compatibility, genograms, gender roles and family of origin issues and explore expectations, assisting in setting mutually compatible short-term and long term goals.
