Premarital Counseling

Weddings take a lot of planning. The tasks to prepare for a wedding are practically endless from picking out the dress, deciding on the bridal party, choosing the location and tasting differed cake samples, the planning that is involved is extensive. As important as it is to plan for the wedding, it's even more important to plan for the marriage.

Premarital counseling provides couples the opportunity to learn more about themselves, each other and how they can have the best marriage possible. Premarital counseling helps couples to understand each person's individual history, how their family of origin has affected their views of life and marriage, as well as how their life experiences have shaped who they are today. In doing so, it provides couples the ability to find what they want to take with them for the family they are now creating and leave behind things that may be cause problems in the future.

Premarital counseling also helps couples to identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and see how those strengths or weaknesses will affect their marriage partnership. In addition, topics, like money (the number one topic couples fight about), conflict resolution, communication, sexual expectations, and roles within the marriage are just a few of the topics that may be discussed in the premarital counseling process. By addressing these topics now, couples are able to enter their marriage more prepared, confident and ready for the transition to married life.

At Hope, through the process of premarital counseling, we desire to give couples the opportunity to walk down the aisle with confidence that they are excited and prepared for the journey that awaits them in marriage. We also hope that couples would understand, as they say "I Do", that they have explored and learned more about themselves and each other and can say "I Do" with the assurance that they have gained the tools, resources and understanding to walk with each other through the joys and challenges of life.
