Pre-Marital Counseling

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE...whatever you do…do NOT skip this part of your planning process. It has totally changed the way we communicate. We had the best sessions ever! We joined the group at our church. It started with just getting a root foundation in our relationship with Christ first…and then focused on our relationship with each other! The sessions were in a group form. The five couples have joined a small group and we now meet monthly for fellowship. So what Ed and I have only been to two meetings. WE LOVE IT.

Admittedly, I didn’t really think we needed it or that we would learn anything new. WELL WAS I WRONG!!! Not only did it help to grow our relationship but it also helped us develop relationships with a great group of couples that are doing this thing the right way as well. We learned that we are not the only ones going through typcial relationship woes.

So again…take the time out to go to some sort of counseling. Allow someone into your space so that you can air out all issues. It’s SOOOOOOO worth it.

Here’s our certificate. We’s OFFICIAL! J

  1. Yes Ma'am! Pre-Marital was definitely worth it. I was skeptical at first considering the delays we experienced with registering but doing it with a great group of people (like you and Ed) made it so worth it. I can't imagine what it would be like had we not done it.

  2. Lol. Way to go! My church requires us to go to a pre-wedding prep so I be doing something like this. I'm looking forward to it. There's no such thing as a perfect relationship and I think it's important to examine that imperfection in our own.

  3. I did go to counseling, twelve years ago when we got married. We got married in a Catholic church and it is part of the requirement to go to counseling and confession. It's comforting and allows couples to go into a marriage without secrets and misconceptions about what is expected.

  4. Yeah I can NOT imagine what it would be like without it. We are still quoting things and using the techniques!

  5. Communication breakdown is often cited as the most common complaint in struggling marriages. Healing the brokenness in the marriage and overcoming communication breakdowns in marriage requires perseverance and a shift in attitudes but it is possible even if only one person is trying.
