As divorce rates continue to rise in the United States, more and more couples are approaching marriage with increasing caution.While Americans are still opting for marriage, many are looking for opportunities to damage-proof their relationships before they say “I do.”
Pre-marital group counseling is just one approach couples are taking.
Pre-marital group counseling, like any couples counseling, is usually facilitated by a skilled family therapist, or sometimes a member of the clergy. The function of pre-marital counseling is two-fold:
- To assist couples in developing skills to navigate their way through marriage successfully.
- To identify, and if possible resolve, areas of difference between couples that may become a source of conflict later.
Discussion topics include finances, work, distribution of household chores, children, intimacy, communication, and more.
