Premarital therapy has become more and more popular since the divorce rate in our country has gone up. New statistics claim that divorce has gone down however this is a new wave of young people who are simply turning away from tradition and committing to each other in other ways other than the traditional marriage vows. However way you have chosen to commit to and redefine your relationships to each other, it is still clever to ensure that your union will have happiness and longevity. What I offer in my Pre-marital and Pre-commitment sessions are a recommended 10 sessions where the couple can go through such topics as: The Home: Our home is the most immediate expression of who we are and how we view life. It is a place we retire to after giving of ourselves all day long. It is the one place in the whole world that should be a safe space. It’s crucial to discuss the space; you and your partner will live in together. Form can give rise to content. No matter how much you love each other, the feeling and properties of the space you share will affect the course of your relationship. A small space may feel cozy to you but suffocating to your partner. Casual housekeeping may denote relaxation to your partner and slovenliness to you. It is important to hear your lovers needs on these topics, and to express your own. Money: Of all the subjects couple can discuss, money is the most metaphoric. Money can mean security, love, power, and freedom. Perhaps because of it’s various levels of meaning, it is one of the subjects most often battled over. Financial disagreements cause as many failed relationships as do sexual/romantic disagreements. Work: Work can be the center of our lives or simply the means to an end, or both. Outside of the family, work often houses our most important relationships. Professional relationships and goals can have a powerful impact on the life of a couple. Most likely both partners will require each other’s emotional and or financial support to reach their professional goals. Sex: The erotic sexual connection. It live. It dies. It is reborn. Or not. What aspect of a relationship is more mysterious than this? Where do trust and passion and anger and adoration and need and ennui love most directly between you and your partner? Perhaps we marry for romance. Perhaps we marry for security. Perhaps we marry to start a family. Perhaps we marry because it is time to do so. Perhaps we marry because we found our soul mate.
