Premarital counseling


Why consider Premarital counseling?

Are you and your partner on your way to “I Do”? Being asked or asking your beloved to marry is an exciting feeling for most of us. The future looks bright, and we tend to sometimes ignore the potential challenges our relationship may face down the road. Love is a powerful feeling but it does need to be fed by other less emotional factors, such as communication, problem-solving, budgeting money, shared values and mutual goals.

Here at Ace Counseling Group, we offer Premarital therapy. It may be a vital time during this transition period but a few sessions of Premarital counseling can really help lay the foundation for a secure, emotionally cooperative, intimate marriage. Premarital counseling work differs from regular couples counseling. Premarital counseling provides a firm ground for couples to step into marriage with the right confidence and joy.


What is Premarital Counseling?

Premarital counseling may help with any future stress or strife in the relationship and enhance the harmony between the partners. It involves confidential sessions where you and your loved one will have the opportunity to gain insight, hear and learn from each other – all with your therapist’s support and guidance. Premarital counseling differs from couples counseling in several areas.

What type of topics are covered in Premarital Counseling:

  • Communication
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Emotional and physical intimacy
  • Values
  • Goals
  • Sharing decisions
  • Finances
  • Friends, and extended family interactions
  • Children
  • Roles and expectations
  • Defining loyalty
  • Building a positive atmosphere
  • Career
  • Religion & spirituality

What is the structure of Premarital counseling?

It is typically more structured than regular couples counseling. Our sessions are in a calm, undistracted space where we decide what topics you feel will benefit from discussing. You and your partner will be able to set the agenda. We will review options with you but we will discuss the areas that you only want to discuss.

What is the benefit of Premarital counseling?

You may not have fully discussed certain questions that are bound to come up throughout your long lives together. Perhaps you’re not quite sure about starting a family, how to join your finances, or how to maintain a healthy sex life. Or maybe there are communication issues that need to be evaluated so that you can fight fairly and avoid angry outbursts when disagreements inevitably come up.

Premarital therapy is a preventative effort. It helps to bring attention to what’s already working, create deeper connections, find and sort through potential disputes as well as provide you with solid tools to get through those future challenges.
