As the name implies, Premarital Therapy is counseling for couples who are engaged to be married, or who are similarly partnered, and who want to strengthen their bond early in the game. It is also useful for helping to identify weaknesses that could become problems later on during marriage.
Couples who engage in Premarital Therapy are encouraged to discuss topics that could become concerns and issues down the road including finances, parenting, sex and conflict resolution.
Premarital Therapy is short-term, focused work that is appropriate when each partner shares a common goal and wishes to develop effective communications tools to maintain a healthy, rewarding relationship. As such, many spiritual leaders require an engaged couple to participate in premarital counseling prior to conducting a ceremony.
Couples who are experiencing an acute crisis or are questioning their relationship might be better served by other types of therapy that we offer.
