Premarital counseling can reduce your chances of divorce by 30 percent (prepare-enrich.com, 2017). This is a sizable percentage! Married couples have a more challenging time today than ever before trying to maintain an effective, happy and fulfilling relationship. Social media, needing two incomes and the push for equality are just a few contributors that have changed the married couple dynamic.
Wedding planning and the actual wedding day itself can run much smoother when both partners feel more confident about this huge decision to commit to each other “forever.” Premarital counseling helps to facilitate this confidence and allows the couple to feel more emotionally connected and prepared for the future together. It assists the couple in working better as partners.
Premarital Counseling may sound like just one more thing to do before the wedding, however, as a Certified Prepare-Enrich Relationship Counselor and Gottman trained therapist, Janean Byrne passionately believes that premarital counseling should be the highest priority on the list.
