Pre-marriage counseling is highly recommended.
The process is as follows:
• I invite the couple to take an online inventory called PREPARE-ENRICH
• This inventory provides me with your perceptions of the strengths and weaknesses in your relationship and identifies clear areas for growth
• We meet for 2 sessions of about 1 hour each, reviewing the report, and learning essential skills for a better marriage, such as communication, conflict resolution, financial planning etc.
• You enjoy these sessions, gain some useful tools for your marriage, and have a better relationship as a result
When you consider the thousands of dollars, and dozens of hours you spend on the wedding day itself, it just makes sense to make this small investment of time and money in something that will enhance your relationship for years.
