Myth #4: Doing Premarital Counseling Means There is Something Wrong With Our Relationship
Seeking out premarital counseling and education before getting married does NOT mean there is anything wrong with your partner or your relationship. I cannot stress this enough, because I believe there continues to be a stigma that keeps many people from realizing the benefit of these services. The goal of premarital counseling and education is proactive in nature; it is meant to give you a space to learn about your partner and your strengths and growth areas as a couple. It teaches you communication skills to build a strong foundation as you head into marriage, and provides you with tools to manage conflict, a key component to a healthy, strong relationship. Other topics include financial management, marriage expectations, partner style and habits, and many more!
