The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” applies to marriage health as much as it does to physical health. We’d like to help couples avoid issues where possible, or work with couples to keep the issues from creating a significant problem.
We offer premarital coaching directly with engaged couples, or by assisting pastors or church staff when time constraints make it difficult for them to meet with couples on a regular schedule. Studies have shown that premarital preparation increases the chance of marriage success by 30%. As a starting point for building a solid foundation for marriage, we conduct a relationship assessment of an engaged couple, whether first marriage or re-marriage. We are certified to administer Prepare/Enrich and SYMBIS relationship assessments.
Once results are available, we meet with the couple for 3 or 4 sessions, each lasting 1.5 to 2 hours, to review the results, discuss implications, and provide activities to help prepare the couple for married life. In addition, we schedule a 3-month post-wedding check-in with the couple to discuss what they've learned during the early months of marriage, and we discuss how to address any issues that may be surfacing. Premarital coaching is scheduled with each engaged couple at a mutually agreed upon time.
For additional information, or if you are interested in scheduling premarital coaching or exploring how we can supplement what is provided at your church, call 614.902.3032, or send an email to Strengthening@ReclaimingWholeness.Life
