WHAT IS PREMARITAL COUNSELING
PREMARITAL COUNSELLING is a therapy that is opted by / given to the “to be brides and grooms.” This includes a set of sessions where these people are prepared mentally for the upcoming new journey with responsibilities. The exercises and therapies help the “couple” to understand each other better. They are also taught effective communication, empathy, dispute solving, financial planning, child planning, and many other aspects of married life.
Knowing and understanding each other better and growing together is the key to a successful married life. Whether an arranged marriage or a love marriage, generally disputes arise due to lack of understanding between the couple. So PRE MARITAL COUNSELING helps the couple to get know each other very well.
Many marriages collapse just because of a lack of effective communication. One may be an introvert and the other one may be an extrovert and bossy. This leads to the bottling up of negative emotions. Since there is hardly any room for effective communication, the couple experiences a total marital discord. PRE MARRIAGE COUNSELING helps the couple to speak about their needs, wants, feelings, effectively, and positively.
This is one of the major requisites for a happy and successful marriage. Lack of empathy is the root cause for unfulfilled over expectations in marriage thus leading to a bitter end in relationships. Out of the two, the job of one person may be demanding. If the other person is not supporting the person and being understanding, the there will be hot spurts in the relationship. PREMARITAL COUNSELING trains the couple how to be empathetic towards the other person.
TRUST/ FAITH/ BELIEF/ CONFIDENCE
Trust is the base of MARRIED LIFE. Once the Trust is broken then it is almost impossible to rebuild the trust. Hence PRE MARITAL COUNSELING helps the couple to build Trust, Belief, and Confidence in one another. In the absence of which, no relationship can survive.
INTIMACY AND SEX
This is an integral and most important part of a happy and successful married life. SEX not only strengthens the bond but also builds rapport. Many feel-good hormones are released during sex. A healthy SEXUAL LIFE makes one feel good about oneself, about one another, and also helps in relieving STRESS. One should not use SEX as a weapon to fight with the spouse or to get irrelevant demands fulfilled. COUNSELING about SEX, and intimate relationship also makes a part of PREMARITAL COUNSELING.
