With divorce rates steadily climbing up every year, it’s a great idea to get some premarital counseling before you get married.
I married my husband 7 years ago and although we were dating for 5 years prior to that, we decided that we needed some premarital counseling. There are many people who think that only couples with issues need counseling but I digress.
In my book, every couple has a few issues because we’re all human and counseling certainly can’t be all that bad.
If anything, it only improves your relationship and you get to expect so many things you might not have imagined. Every marriage is different and we all combat several issues.
When two people get married, they absolutely have no idea about what they are getting into since nobody can teach you how to handle things. This is why we thought that it would be nice to get some premarital counseling although we practically knew everything about each other.
If you’re planning to get married, I recommend premarital counseling because it gives you an inkling about your future regarding marriage. Primarily, premarital counseling helps you communicate with your partner in an effective manner.
Many marriages fail due to several issues and while finance and infidelity could be among them, lack of communication is the main reason.
If you’re worried that you might not be communicating with your partner, you might want to take up premarital counseling to help you sort things out.
