Premarital Counseling & Education

Our Services

Premarital Counseling is a therapy for couples who are preparing for marriage. At MN Counseling and Couples Center, we believe premarital counseling can ensure that you and your partner will have a strong, healthy and satisfying marriage. According to one study, pre-marriage coaching or counseling can improve a couple’s chance for success in marriage by as much as 30%. 

Premarital counseling can also help identity concerns and provide an opportunity to address those concerns and improve your relationship before marriage. By discussing differences and expectations before marriage, you and your spouse or partner can better understand and support each other as you being your married life together. 

The therapists at MN Counseling and Couples Center are trained providers of PREPARE/ENRICH, by Life Innovations. PREPARE/ENRICH is a comprehensive assessment tool designed to look at key areas of a relationship; and identify the strengths as well as growth areas of the relationship. Both partners complete the assessment separately; then the results are reviewed, together with the therapist. 

Areas the assessment will cover are:

  • Beliefs and values
  • Finances
  • Communication
  • Roles in Marriage
  • Sex and Intimacy
  • Family Relationships
  • Children and Parenting
  • Decision making
  • Dealing with Anger 
  • Resolving Conflicts
  • Couple Time
  • Social Time

In addition to the assessment, we could discuss important topic such as:

  • Life goals
  • How to handle a crisis in marriage
  • Christian premarital counseling
  • What does your relationship mean to each of you 
  • Views of Divorce

To get started just contact our office and we will gather your intake information and schedule  you for an initial session with your therapist. During the initial session, your therapist will talk with you about your relationship history and assess any concerns you might have.  Following the initial session, each partner will be sent an e-mail link which they will use to complete the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment. Once the assessments are completed, your therapist will receive a comprehensive analysis of your relationship including an individualized couple's workbook.  A feedback session with your therapist will then be scheduled to review the results.  

 During the feedback session,  the couple will be presented with the results of the assessment along with the analysis; which is a report highlighting both the strength and growth area of the relationship. The primary focus of the feedback session is to discuss the results and begin to address/work through any growth areas identified.  Additionally, the couple will receive their individualized workbook which can be used as a future resource and guide for continuing to strengthen their relationship.  Following the feedback session, some couples may decide to continue with on-going therapy, depending upon their concerns and relationship goals.  

Pre-marital counseling and education is a great investment in the future of your relationship. It will help empower you with knowledge and tools for your journey into married life!
