What do Snow White, Cinderella, and the Little Mermaid have in common? The last time you see them is on their wedding day. They kiss their prince, the music plays, and the words, “Happily Ever After” flash on the screen. You don’t see the challenges they face 6 months or 6 years in the future.
Most people marry with the best of intentions having planned to have a happily ever after, but every marriage has problems and every marriage needs lots of work.
Since one-half of first marriages end in divorce and two-thirds of second marriages end in divorce, pursuing professionally executed premarital counseling shows foresight and courage. Even if someone has been married before, it is still a smart move to get premarital counseling since people tend to make the same mistakes and carry the same patterns into a second marriage. Professional counseling will help you break old patterns and set healthy marital habits.
The length of time for premarital counseling depends on the issues you present. If a couple comes to me with a fairly healthy relationship, 3 sessions are often enough. More sessions may be indicated depending on your needs.
I have had an abundance of premarital counseling experience and have developed my own approach. It is an area of counseling I greatly enjoy. I would love to help you.
My fee for a 50 minute session is $200. The benefits of premarital counseling are abundant.
