6 Reasons You Should

Consider Premarital Classes

Couples Corner

I know, your big wedding day is a symbol and testament to the love and commitment you already have with your partner and it’s a day you will always remember! While there are so many components and side events that go into your wedding day, I want to remind you of the importance of planning for your marriage along the way.

This does not mean that you are doubting your commitment to your partner or that you are unsure of your future together. Planning for your marriage means that you recognize the importance and value of having a healthy relationship and want to learn healthy relationship skills that you can continue to implement years down the road.

Here are 6 reasons you and your fiancé should consider taking an online premarital class:

Healthy communication skills

In these courses, you can learn how to go about life together with your new spouse. Engaged couples get extreme messages of “marriage is hard,” “just wait until your first fight,” or hear the polar opposite of “it will all be okay once you get married, or “everything settles down and will be fine after the wedding.” These messages can be confusing, daunting, and unrealistic. But luckily for you, there has been research done that has studied couples in successful and unsuccessful relationships and this program has been developed to help couples, like yourself, learn what the keys are to a successful relationship. One of the main focuses of the program is healthy communication skills which are delivered in pre-recorded videos with worksheets to help you understand the different skills.

This program is here to make your life simple by learning what you need to make your marriage strong!

No more guesswork

This class will take out the guesswork of how to manage conflict together, what to talk about when it comes to taking care of yourself and each other, how to make sure you are nurturing your friendship with each other, and how to create a support system.

The wedding day can be easy but married life can feel challenging. But it doesn’t have to feel that way because in this online premarital course you will learn skills to a successful marriage.

Step-be-Step Manual

Engaged couples likes yourself have shared how they have been thankful to learn about healthy communication in a step-by-step process. Couples have also shared that it made it easy to understand how to implement care and compassion while communicating.

When I work with couples who have been together for many years in couples counseling, these are two of the pieces of communication that I often hear “I wish we were doing this the entire time.” And with guided activities and pre-recorded videos, you will be able to grasp how to do this. The online premarital class reviews healthy relationship skills in a step-by-step process.

Affordable

I get that wedding planning can be expensive! It’s not just the wedding day that you must plan for and pay for, but its everything leading up to the big day as well. This is why in my diamond package; I have partnered up with local wedding vendors to help you save even more on your wedding day. In addition, the price of either the core skills premarital class or the diamond package is roughly about 1-2% of the average wedding planning budget! That’s a steal when looking at the longevity of marital happiness.

Time and Accessibility

I get the wedding planning can be a busy time and you may be wondering, when will we be able to fit this into our schedule? I had couples like you in mind when putting this online class together and divided the modules into easy 3-10 minutes videos so that you could take a few minutes out of your day to slowly chip away at it and be able to fully understand the material.

Closeness

One study found that couples who have taken this course have reported experiencing a significant increase in relationship confidence and relationship quality, while also experiencing a significant decrease in negative interactions.

Who wouldn’t want to experience that daily! And those steps are given to you in this program.

So there you have it, 6 reasons as to why you and your fiancé should take time during your wedding planning journey to also plan for your marriage! You can gain access to this curriculum by clicking here: Access to the online premarital course.

Remember, there is no better wedding gift than a gift of a healthy marriage.
