Most couples choose to see a pre-marital counselor in the months leading up to their wedding, and we recommend you do this too. A professional pre-marital counselor can help you and your partner identify any potential conflict areas and help you develop tools to deal with them.
Counselors will typically ask a variety of questions during these sessions. Listed below are four of the most common ones. But, conversely, don’t head to pre-marital counseling expecting to be asked these lone questions - it’s an interactive session, of course.
The ultimate aim of every professional pre-marital counselor is to prepare you for what to expect as you begin your lives anew; that’s what we’ll do for you too.
· What Are Your Expectations for Marriage?
This question is meant to help us understand your individual goals and hopes for marriage. It’s also an opportunity for you to communicate openly with your partner about your expectations.
· How Do You Handle Conflict?
Conflict is inevitable in any relationship. And we’ll want to know how you and your partner typically deal with it.
This will help us identify any potential conflict areas and provide advice on the best ways how to resolve them.
· What Are Your Financial Goals?
Money is one of the most common sources of tension in a marriage. So, we’ll ask you to tell us about your individual financial goals and how you plan to manage your finances as a couple. This can help prevent money from becoming a source of conflict.
· What Are Your Plans for Children?
If you’re planning on starting a family, what are your thoughts on parenting? How do you feel about it? We’ll ask you things like how you plan to discipline your children and your expectations for their education.
Answering these questions honestly and openly with your partner is a great way to start your marriage on the right foot. You’ll also know and curb potential conflict areas and deal with them before they compound your relationship. And they will help you better understand each other and set realistic expectations for your marriage.
