22 Lessons Learned: Resources

What is Premarital Counseling? Marriage is all about the bond of strong love between two people that is bonded together with the moments that they had in the church or in front of a judge. The old people would all say that a marriage is supposed to last a lifetime, which is why it is sacred. But unfortunately, this is not what is happening today. With the help of premarital counseling, you will most probably have a successful marriage. A psychiatrist, a therapist, a pastor, or a priest, are the ones that facilitates these counseling activities. The main core of this premarital counseling is for the couple to face each other, talk, and see if they have any points of differences that may hinder them to have a happy marriage later on in their lives. Through the help of a PreMarital Inventory (PMI), therapists do this in an easier way. The discussion points are found here along with the several categories that the therapist will discuss with the couple.
