    Preparing for Marriage

    Are you and your partner looking to take your relationship to the next level?

    While it’s not an engagement topic that seems very fun or romantic, premarital counseling can set your marriage up to succeed and survive long-term, in spite of life’s ups and downs.  Premarital counseling has been found to reduce risk of divorce by 30%.

    As a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator, I use a structured, time-limited (6-8 sessions) approach to help you develop skills for confronting the expected and unexpected in your marriage.

    This can include helping you strengthen communication skills, learn conflict management, uncover your shared core values as well as identify differences that could create future conflict. 

    Working with a Northern Kentucky counselor, you can also discuss expectations with your partner that will help better prepare both of you for marriage.

    So if these sound like you…

    • You and your partner have arguments that don’t get resolved
    • You feel like you’re always the one who has to compromise to keep the peace
    • You’re concerned about how your partner’s financial situation will affect you as a married couple
    • You’re worried about losing affection or having a diminished sex life after marriage
    • You want to find healthier ways to resolve conflict
    • You want to resolve religious or financial differences
    • You want to define your marital roles and expectations

    …Then premarital counseling can be a great benefit to both you and your partner.

    This investment will help you learn how to be a better listener, and how to make your voice and your needs be heard in a productive and positive manner.

    This is also an excellent time for us to find unexpected areas where you disagree, and give you the tools to handle possible future conflict.

    Getting married is one of life’s most treasured experiences. Premarital counseling can help you and your partner turn that momentous occasion into a loving, lasting relationship.
