Premarital Education Workshop:  $200/couple

Many couples have expressed an interest in premarital education.  They want to step into their new relationship with the necessary tools to make it a success.

I call premarital education pre-wedding education.  Why you might ask?  It’s because many couples cohabit for years prior to getting permanently hitched.  However, cohabiting couples still want to be prepared for their new life together as a married couple.

Therefore, I have created a group workshop for all couples to attend.

Will premarital education save my marriage, you might ask?   We will discuss the destructive factors that can wreak havoc on a marriage, as well as, the positive attributes that can make a marriage a success.

For your information, I have listed below some of the destructive factors that are known for there destructive energy in a marriage.  I don’t think it’s necessary for me to list the positive attributes that will keep a marriage happy and alive.

You will have an opportunity to explore them in the next workshop.

THERE ARE THREE FACTORS THAT PREDICT A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE:

  • Effective Communication & Active Listening

  • Resolving Conflict

  • Realistic Expectations

If you are experiencing any form of abuse in your relationship, this workshop would not be the best choice to finding a resolution.  Kindly seek the services of a professional family therapist, psychiatrist, or psychologist.
