As you plan your wedding day, your honeymoon, and the start of your brand new life as a couple, you should also work on your plan for staying together. It is not uncommon for marriages to start off blissfully, but then hit rough patches as spouses encounter conflict without knowing the proper ways to communicate to resolve that conflict.
Resolve Problems Before They Harm Your Marriage
You may want to consider pre-marital counseling if you are having trouble answering the following questions, or if you simply want to ensure a solid foundation for your marriage at the start.
- Have you and your partner discussed how you will handle money?
- Do you and your partner agree on if you will have kids and how they will be raised?
- Do you and your partner share the same values, religion, and political views?
Premarital Counseling Will Teach You the Skills You Need to Maintain a Healthy Marriage
At Select Counseling, I can help couples open the door to deep conversations about the things that matter most in a marriage, allowing them to explore the issues before they turn into problems. You can learn the skills you need to navigate those conversations – as well as future ones – so that you will be able to head off conflict before it begins.
My approach centers on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, a short-term structured approach to couples therapy backed by over 20 years of empirical research. The goal of this therapy is to expand emotional responses, initiate new forms of interaction, and create a secure bond between partners. With this approach, I can help couples prevent pointless arguing, emotional disconnections, and intimacy issues by helping them learn the problem-solving and communication skills needed to navigate the following issues that often arise during marriage.
