Premarital Counseling Edmonton

Couples like to jump into marriage without any real plan or vision for what their life together is going to be like. After all, the life of a married couple is not the same as two people who are just in a romantic relationship. PREMARITAL COUNSELING could be the most important step that you take before marriage. So many relationship. Marriage involves a lot more commitment and devotion to each other from a personal and economic standpoint. If a couple is not ready to take on that kind of responsibility, then they are going to find marriage to be too overwhelming for them. This is perhaps a big reason that so many marriages end in divorce these days. You need to plan your wedding now so that you are not surprised by the obstacles that come your way.

When you create a vision for your new life together, try to be realistic about it. Most couples may imagine themselves in a beautiful house with a white picketed fence and kids running around the backyard. However, what is it going to take to achieve that? Are you and your fiancé financially ready to support the lifestyle that you both want to live as a married couple? What problems are you going to face which will put a damper on that agenda?  If you can figure out how to solve those problems early on, then you will be ready for them as they arise. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this alone. Why PREMARITAL

WHY PREMARITAL COUNSELING ?

The benefit of PREMARITAL COUNSELING is to guide you through the preparatory stages of marriage. As a therapist, I privately counsel couples on their expectations of married life. And whether they have the means to support those expectations. We will discuss realistic topics that many couples may not want to consider because they may be sore subjects during the Pre marital counselling sessions . For example, we may talk about family relationships, religious beliefs, financial situations, anger problems, the desire to have children and so forth. Some couples may find these issues to be sensitive topics, but they must be discussed. Otherwise, they will cause problems after the marriage when these topics need to be faced and dealt with.

PRE MARRIAGE COUNSELLING

Think of PREMARITAL COUNSELING like an educational session. I am not here to instruct anyone that they can or can’t do something. I simply help the future bride and groom realize their goals and whether they have a common interest to achieve them. Sometimes a couple may discover they don’t have a common interest or perhaps different purposes than one another. This is not necessary a bad thing because it allows them to communicate and come to a resolution about these issues before their wedding day. That way, they can both enter into their marriage with a clean slate of total understanding of each other’s wishes for the future.
