Premarital Counseling

Your marriage will be one of the most important and satisfying relationships you’ll ever have. And like any quality relationship, you'll get out of it what you put into it. A successful marriage takes an investment of time, effort, and a mutual commitment to each other. That's where premarital counseling can help.

You may ask, “How can we know for sure we’re doing what it takes to build a marriage that lasts?” That’s an important question, because the statistics are alarming. According to the CDC1, about half of all marriages end in divorce. The average marriage lasts 8 years, with 20% of marriages ending within the first 5 years (49% for co-habiting unmarried couples).

How do you prevent your marriage from becoming a negative statistic? The good news is that there’s hope! Premarital counseling using the PREPARE-ENRICH program was developed in 1980 as a resource to help premarital couples establish strong and rewarding relationships. Since that time, more than 4,000,000 premarital and married couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through taking the P/E assessment and working with a Certified Facilitator like me attending premarital counseling. 

What is the premarital counseling P/E assessment tool? It’s a scientifically-developed online inventory which identifies your current strengths and growth areas as a couple. Once you and your partner have each taken the assessment, I’ll then schedule a series of feedback sessions with you to help you understand your results. You'll learn important evidence-based relationship skills. From beginning to end, this premarital counseling program is designed to be comfortable, relaxed and even fun.

The PREPARE/ENRICH premarital counseling program has a proven track record of helping couples prepare for many of the ups and downs of marriage. It stimulates honest, open dialogue, and teaches you how to communicate in ways that are mutually affirming. Imagine having constructive discussions which produce a win-win outcome for both of you. Using our assessment tools, you’ll find it easier to understand your partner and be understood by them. This will foster a deeper, healthier relationship and sustain it over the years.

With PREPARE/ENRICH, you will:

  • Identify your strengths as a couple and build new ones
  • Strengthen your communication skills
  • Uncover stressful areas and process them successfully
  • Learn to fight fair- to resolve your conflicts instead of making them worse
