It is probably no coincidence that 50% of all marriages end in divorce and that a very small percentage of people who marry complete any kind of pre-marriage education or counseling process. A structured process of education and exploration is critical to the long-term success of a marriage—simply because it prepares partners for their many years together and eliminates many of the inevitable surprises that people encounter.
This process enables couples to:
Get to know each other better
Learn where they differ
Learn important skills
Anticipate areas of conflict and develop plans to manage problems
Goals of the Premarital Counseling Program:
1. To explore relationship strengths and growth areas
2. To learn assertiveness and active listening skills
3. To learn how to resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model
4. To help the couple discuss their Family-of-Origin
5. To help the couple with financial planning and budget
6. To focus on personal, couple and family goals
