Two of the most important things you can do to prepare for marriage are improving your communication (including conflict resolution skills) and setting goals as a couple. In premarital Christian counseling, you’ll have a chance to share and process your opinions, values, and histories, and discuss how these factors will affect your marriage.
Often, couples just entering marriage have an expectation of holistic fulfillment in their emotions, need for companionship, and sexuality, but marital satisfaction doesn’t happen automatically; it’s the result of continued effort. It’s important to discuss expectations prior to marriage so that you can be understanding of each other.
In premarital Christian counseling, our desire is to help you build your marriage on the strong foundation of Christ, who is the only true source of faithfulness and commitment.
At Newport Beach Christian Counseling, our Christian counselors will work with you and your partner to help facilitate your spiritual growth and love for one another. We believe this will provide the best start possible for your marriage.
The Benefits of Christian Premarital Counseling
When you seek premarital counseling from a Christian perspective, you’ll receive the benefits of evidence-based counseling methods shared from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Our counselors are trained in relationship dynamics, and the guidance they offer is based on Scripture.
This allows us to offer a well-rounded approach to healing and growing your relationship, one that encompasses all aspects of personhood. Matters of the soul are intricately connected with our emotional and physical wellbeing, and sometimes healing is needed in all of these areas.
While preparing for marriage, it’s vital to discuss spiritual matters and understand how your partner expresses his or her faith. Your Christian counselor will encourage you to discuss how both of you express your faith and how you expect to live it out as an individual and a spouse.
We are happy to work with couples coming from a variety of religious backgrounds. We will help to provide compassionate solutions to help you prepare for marriage.
