Premarital Counseling

Online Premarital Counseling in Virginia

You love your partner. Yet, you wonder, “Are we ready for that forever commitment?”

You’ve been with your partner for a decent amount of time. So, certain aspects of your relationships are getting serious. With this seriousness comes big decisions to make. Maybe you’ve talked about marriage or moving in together.  But this next step is a big deal. And, you want to be sure that your relationship makes sense long term for both of you.

Or, perhaps one of you already popped the question and you’ve made that decision to take the next step in your life together. But, there are aspects of your relationship that you feel really need to be improved. Small things that you don’t want to turn into big issues down the road. For some of us, COVID postponed our day and there’s been a lot of stress that’s come along with that. You’re doing your best, you don’t feel like you’re equipped to handle this.

You don’t have to live with the uncertainty of big decisions. Starting online premarital counseling in Virginia can help you strengthen your relationship and find the confidence in your relationship you’ve been looking for.

What does a “health relationship” or a “healthy marriage” even look like?

Taking big steps in your relationship at any stage can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, the expectations we’re “supposed to meet” don’t always make sense for our relationship.  If you’re like most couples, you’ve been given a ton of well-meaning advice from caring family members or friends. Yet, what works for their relationship may just not apply to yours.  Or perhaps you’ve read books about relationships and marriage and struggle to figure out how to apply it to your unique situation. And of course, you’ve seen marriages and relationships modeled on TV or in public.  But all of this information still leaves you wondering, “What is a healthy relationship?” and “Is my relationship ok? Do we have what it takes to make it long term?”

And, all of this this can cause a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety. Luckily, online premarital counseling in Virginia can help you navigate these questions. Our professional couples therapists and marriage counselors offer premarital counseling to help you early on identify not only what a “healthy relationship” looks like but how the concept applies to your relationship specifically.
