Premarital counseling, a specialized type of therapy usually provided by marriage and family therapists, is believed to offer benefit to all couples who are considering a long-term commitment such as marriage. Typically, the goal of premarital counseling is to identify and address any potential areas of conflict in a relationship early on, before those issues become serious concerns, and teach partners effective strategies for discussing and resolving conflict.
Couples in the pre-engagement or pre-marital state of life are often consumed by the thought of what marriage is-often not based in reality. And during this stage in our lives, we are often protected by a facade we build, hiding our true selves from our potential spouse.
Whether in the pre-marital (pre-engagement), newly married or even the empty-nesters stage of a relationship, all couples strive for a connection and a sense of intimacy with their chosen partner. But, too often, couples find themselves struggling to keep what they experienced when first married or dating.
Those beginning the marriage journey often ask themselves the question, “Is this what I signed up for?” And they are right to ask. We never marry whom we think we are marrying.
And, empty-nesters often ask themselves the question “Is this all there is?”
God wants our marriage to be both challenging and fulfilling. We can develop an intimacy that we never thought possible as we begin to explore those barriers to intimacy.
