As you and your partner approach marriage or long-term commitment, the best way to prepare for your future together is by learning the tools and skills that form the foundation of a successful long-term relationship. A premarital counseling workshop can help you build that foundation by creating a safe space for you and your partner to attune to each others needs and align on your future together.
All couples start with a strong commitment to make their relationship successful, yet between 41%–50% of them will end up in a divorce. Without realizing it, most couples have unrealistic expectations about their marriage, fueled by myths and popular media. Moreover, most people don’t have good relationship role models, so despite their best intentions, they end up repeating unproductive patterns.
If you have found yourselves thinking about your future together, new conflicts and struggles may have surfaced. This might bring more anxiety and even doubt, but they are all normal parts of planning this big commitment.
You really love each other, and with the right skills and tools, you can have a successful relationship filled with passion, intimacy, spontaneity, and support.
