Premarital Counseling

What is Premarital Counseling?

Premarital counseling is done for an individual or couple before they take the major step of marriage. Premarital counseling usually involves sharing family background information, hopes and dreams, and learning about one another’s strengths and areas for growth. Most of all, it involves being serious about making a life-long commitment.

Do I (or We) Need it?

If you are considering marriage, premarital counseling is always a good idea. Marriage is a life-long covenant with another person and it is a decision that shouldn’t be made without a great deal of consideration. Many times, couples are starry-eyed and idealistic at the beginning of a relationship and premarital help can give them the tools to keep them happy and hopeful through many seasons!
