Premarital Counseling & Therapy
Your marital relationship can become a tremendous source of love, affection, support and motivation. Research shows that people in long-term happy relationships are physically and emotionally healthier over the life span. How you start and cultivate your marriage can have a tremendous impact over the course of the relationship.
- Are you currently engaged or contemplating marriage?
- Are you newly married and wanting to ensure that you continue the happy relationship?
- Are you engaged or newly married and the "honeymoon phase” of your relationship is diminishing, or it has already ended?
Premarital counseling is a way that you and your partner can learn to enhance positive relationship skills to help each of you achieve satisfaction within your marriage over the long term. Research shows that there are consistent characteristics that increase dissatisfaction and risk for divorce over time, and likewise that there are key characteristics and dynamics that foster marital happiness.
