If you are considering marriage or are already engaged it is important to get as much advice and wisdom as possible BEFORE YOU SAY I DO! Statistics show that 60 percent of marriages end in divorce. All too many couples get caught up in planning their weddings without developing a plan for their marriage and spending the rest of their lives on earth together. The early stages of a relationship, when the feelings you have for your partner are usually positive, is the ideal time to become more conscious and intentional in the ways you interact and work together. Premarital counseling can give you insights and help ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship — giving you a better chance for a stable, satisfying and secure lifelong marriage. Premarital counseling can also help you identify weaknesses that could become problems during marriage.
