You think you have found the “One”. Plans for Marriage are a frequent topic and you both look at each other with that eye towards the future, BUT, preparing for a wedding versus preparing for a lifelong commitment are two very different things. Oftentimes, the act of making the huge decisions to marry bring up some of the larger differences between the two of you that you may not have known existed.
Sometimes couples get caught up in the planning and forget the most important details in the midst of the planning. Is this person right for you? If we have big differences between us, do we have the skills to negotiate the rough spots, especially when the excitement has waned and the day-to-day living sets in?
Plans fail for the lack of counsel, but with the wisdom of multiple advisors, your plans will succeed.
– Prov 15:22
Why Pre-Marital Therapy?
It is important to invest in pre-marital therapy because the statistics are against you. Marriage is not easy; it is some of the hardest work we will ever do, and many marriages fail. Many faith-based leaders require that you engage in pre-marital counseling before they will officiate the wedding. The wise couple will not take this step lightly and we will help you navigate some of the decisions ahead by asking the hard questions, giving assessments that will high highlight some of the differences, and assist you in mediating those differences before they become landmines in your relationship. Your relationship is worth this step of preparation!
