FAQs on Premarital Counseling

What areas are covered in Premarital counseling?

Premarital Counseling covers a wide variety of topics such as communication, conflict resolution, sexual expectations, relationship roles and expectations, children & parenting, personality and goals in your relationship. Plus, oftentimes your therapist will also cover topics unique to you. It is a process that really is tailored to each couple that comes through the door.

Why is premarital counseling important?

Starting off your marriage with intentional and clear conversations around your future can provide a strong foundation to a lasting relationship. Miscommunication or lack of clarity can lead to conflict and discouragement later in your marriage if the important topics aren’t discussed. Oftentimes couples also don’t know when to seek help and wait way too long to enter counseling. By starting in premarital counseling you are getting ahead of future issues that arise and even creating a relationship with a counselor so you can return to counseling much more easily if needed in the future.

What is the Prepare Enrich Assessment?

Prepare Enrich also supplies a workbook of worksheets each couple can work on and discuss in counseling together. To learn more information please visit:
