Many couples believe that marriage will be a solution for any problems or issues that they struggle with. But marriage typically elevates these issues, and they can become long-term problems that persist throughout the life of the relationship.
But couples that engage in brief premarital therapy cut their odds of divorce in half. How come premarital therapy is so helpful, you ask? The goal of premarital therapy is to bring up any unforeseen challenges that you may face and come up with creative solutions before they have a chance to appear. So you are preemptively eliminating opportunities for failure, while learning how to work together to prevent new issues from popping up later.
Some couples fear that premarital therapy will bring up issues that don’t exist. But during the span of the premarital therapy session, we work together as a team to find creative solutions for any and all issues that come up. Still worried? That in itself should be a red flag that your relationship may need an intervention before the big day.
