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

Premarital counseling consist of 3 in-office sessions (each 55 minutes) plus an additional non-therapy hour for the therapist to analyze each partner's results following the completion of your PREPARE/ENRICH Assessments. You will also received an individualized workbook with skills to practice and suggestions for strengthening your relationship based on your assessment results. 

The total cost for the package is $600.00. 

To get started just contact our office and we will schedule  you for an initial session and gather your intake information. Following the scheduling of the initial session, each partner will then be sent an e-mail link which they will use to complete the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment. Your therapist will be notified when the assessments are completed and will preform an analysis of the assessments to provide feedback to you during your initial session. 

During the initial  feedback session,  the couple will be presented with the results of the assessment along with the therapist's analysis; highlighting both the strength and growth area of the relationship. The primary focus of the following two sessions are to delve deeper into the assessment results, and begin to address/work through any growth areas identified.  Additionally, we will review your individualized  workbook to ensure it is used as a positive resource and guide for continuing to work on areas of your relationship that need ongoing/additional strengthening. Some couples may decide to continue with therapy beyond the three "pre-set" sessions, 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!
