Is premarital counseling and education for you?
Most couples just don’t realize that good, skill-based premarital education can reduce the risk of divorce by up to thirty percent and lead to a significantly happier marriage, according to marriage research. It can also reduce the stress of the pre-wedding period.
The research shows that there is a window of opportunity during the year before the wedding and the six months or so after when couples get the optimum benefit from marriage preparation. Just a little effort now can make your odds a whole lot better over the long run.
Premarital counseling is based on the reality that it’s important to strengthen your relationship now while you have so much fresh, positive energy, and prepares constructively for future challenges and conflicts that everyone will inevitably face at some point in their marriage. Couples face more challenges now than ever before (two-career homes while trying to be active parents), yet may have less support.
Take charge of your relationship now, before problems arise. Navigate Life offers a non-religious (though we encourage religious premarital counseling as well), skills-based approach to relationship building.
