Premarital Support

Premarital support is a type of service designed to help engaged couples prepare for a successful and fulfilling marriage. The goal of premarital support is to help couples identify and manage conflicts, develop skills for effective communication and conflict resolution, and prepare for the challenges and milestones that come with marriage.

Premarital support is based on the principles of active listening, empathy, and non-judgment. The facilitator works with each partner to understand their perspective, identify areas of conflict, and help them communicate effectively with one another. The facilitator also provides guidance and support to help the couple build a strong foundation for their marriage.

Premarital support can be especially helpful for couples who want to proactively address any conflicts or challenges they may face in their marriage, and to build a solid foundation for their future together. The sessions typically involve individual and joint sessions, where the facilitator works with each partner to identify any issues or conflicts that may be preventing them from having a healthy relationship. The facilitator may also provide tools and techniques for effective communication, conflict resolution, and relationship building.

 

Premarital discussions can be a powerful way for couples to prepare for a successful and fulfilling marriage. It is important to find a qualified facilitator who has experience and training in premarital counseling, and who can provide a supportive, empathetic, and solution-oriented approach to help couples reach their goals.

Some areas of focus in premarital sessions are:

  • Identify areas of difference and how to navigate them

  • Talk about big topics in the relationship - finances, sex, children, parenting

  • Talk about individual needs and personal values - personally and professionally

  • Navigating everyday tasks

  • Holidays, travels and downtimes

  • Me time versus couples time

  • Compassionate collaboration to avoid power struggles

  • Navigating extended familial relationships
