If you are about to get married, then you may want to think about heading into therapy sessions before you rush to the altar. Most engaged couples are so star-crossed in love that they can’t imagine why they would have to attend counseling. Yet heading to a psychologist or therapist while things are amicable will help you to address issues before they become points of tension later on in your marriage. One therapist says that 100 percent of all couples don’t expect to get divorced after they go through the hassle to marry.

At least not any time soon. Most couples would never tie the knot if they knew it could turn into a tangled mess in the future that they would have to slowly untie as they try to move on with their lives. Because 50 percent of all couples don’t uphold the ‘til death do us part’ promise for as long as they said they would, premarital counseling can be a big help. With the right resources, you may be able to beat the statistics and gave a long lasting marriage that will bring you joy and happiness.

Some couples say that premarital counseling gave them the knowledge of each other to beat arguments after the honeymoon was long-over. Therapists approach premarital counseling in different ways and from different perspectives. Some will want to look at the backgrounds and life experiences of both partners while others will work through practical issues li8ke preferences with finances or sex. If you choose to undergo premarital counseling, make sure to keep an open mind and a teachable disposition.
