Premarital counseling is a type of therapy that is geared towards addressing pre-marriage issues, marriage day happenings, and life as married couples. It’s our duty at Meadowbrook Counseling to prepare you well in the science and art of marriage. Having a healthy and strong relationship before you marry gives you a better chance of realizing a stable and fulfilling marriage. It helps identify you with your gray areas as you make informed decisions.
When does premarital counseling happen?
Premarital counseling happens when:
You realize the need for a spouse.
You are seriously involved in a relationship with one partner.
When you no longer want to pass time.
Why premarital counseling?
We offer premarital counseling to help equip you with the information you need before you tie the knot. This knowledge will improve your relationship and increase your trust levels.
Our sessions cover:
We counsel you to:
Know your partner’s parents, grandparents and immediate relatives.
Make sure you understand their view about important life issues, like Religion, Education, and Lifestyle.
Acquaint yourself with biological complications in their family.
Get to know your fiance's relationship with his or her family at present.
This information will enable you go into marriage knowing what to expect. That way you will limit unnecessary after marriage shock
When two people come together in a marriage, the earliest area of disagreement is often the use of money- and all too frequently it remains the touchiest topic for the life of the relationship. If you are desirous of enjoying your married life, please don’t assume this area.
At Meadowbrook Counseling Center we offer premarital counseling to enable you help answer some of these questions:
How shall you spend your money?
How about our accounts? Will you be willing to have a joint account?
Do you overspend and why?
How are you planning to control your expenditure?
Can you handle misfortunes such as sickness, unemployment? What about debts or even death?
These and many other financial questions are better dealt with before you get married
Spousal expectation on sex in marriage is a wide area. We simplify it by providing you with information and resources on when and how to do it. Any conflict in the bedroom can harm marriage irreparably. It is therefore vital that we offer you premarital counseling on factors that can hinder quality sex, including how you enjoy quality and not quantity sex, being sensitive to the sexual needs of your partner’s pre-sex rituals, contraceptives in marriage, and many more.
Children and parenting
Knowing when to have or adopt children and how many is important before you get married. We will offer you premarital counseling on this because we believe that devoting time, energy and resources to molding little lives in their period of vulnerability is one of the greatest calling.
In-laws are a blessing but they sometimes over expect a lot from people intending to establish their family. Knowing how to deal with in-laws will enhance your chances of enjoying your marriage. Couples must not allow parents and other family members to dictate to them how they should relate. So it is vital to settle these issues during courtship.
How far shall you consult?
What modalities of helping and providing for the aging parents will you employ?
Suppose one of you is not accepted by the in-laws for no apparent reason other than incompatible personality. How will you protect him/her?
Meadowbrook Counseling also offers premarital counseling to couples contemplating marriage on time management, likes and dislikes, family investments, midlife issues. We will also prepare you on communication, beliefs and values and many more.
