Congratulations on your engagement! The wedding is coming up soon, and we bet you’re very excited and eager to celebrate the big day. This is a time of high excitement and high stress, and if you’ve landed on this page you’re probably interested in why you should consider premarital counseling. Premarital counseling is different from Marriage Counseling because the couple is not necessarily in counseling to fix problems in the relationship. Rather, couples who seek out premarital counseling are looking to examine and discuss important aspects of their relationship that are going to change as they get married and build a life together. It provides a chance to, “consider and discuss things that will increase the likelihood of a successful marriage,” says family-law attorney Mark Baer.
