Over 50% – that number represents the percentage of all marriages that end in divorce. As you prepare to take your vows, you may also want to consider how you will end up on the right side of this statistic.
Quality premarital counseling is one of the best ways to lay a foundation for a strong marriage. Unfortunately, most couples receive no premarital counseling or only a relatively brief, and superficial look at what lies at the heart of their relationship.
Our counselors are trained in and use the Prepare/Enrich Assessment tool, a research based program that measures your relationship strengths and weaknesses across 15 important areas. This is an invaluable tool for quickly discovering those areas that you have natural strengths in as well as the areas where improvement is recommended in order to succeed. It also provides a specific prognosis or likelihood that your relationship will result in a successful lifelong commitment.
Your premarital counseling will focus on some of the following issues:
Communication skills – unlock the key to understanding each other
History- learn the benefit of resolving family of origin issues
Love languages – understanding how each of you receive love differently
