Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offers pre-marriage counseling to improve your likelihood of creating a union that lasts. Getting married is easy. Staying married takes hard work, planning, and knowledge. Pre-marriage counseling will help you build and maintain a healthy, long-lasting marriage.
Lack of knowledge about what it takes to create a happy, stable relationship can doom a marriage. Research shows that couples can dramatically reduce their chances of divorcing by taking part in premarital counseling, which is intended to give you the knowledge to build a happy, stable, satisfying marriage that will last forever.
Pre-marriage counseling isn’t intended to be a screening process to determine whether you and your partner are a good match. You’ve already made the decision to marry. If you are reading this and haven’t yet made that decision, see our information on pre-engagement counseling. Premarital counseling is designed to help you identify your strengths as a couple, improve the communication skills you already have, and develop new skills that will allow you to build a healthy and happy marriage.
What You Can Expect with Pre-Marriage Counseling
At Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, you will learn through pre-marriage counseling what skills and behaviors are needed for a happy, stable marriage, and what types of behaviors lead to divorce. Our premarital counseling is based on 35 years of research by marriage and parenting expert John Gottman, Ph.D. By documenting the behavioral patterns and interactions of more than 3,000 couples, Dr. Gottman has been able to predict whether a couple will have a successful relationship with 93.6 percent accuracy. We believe his research has a great deal to offer a couple considering a lifetime commitment.
To take your relationship from good to great, we will assist you in strengthening the fondness, admiration, and trust you have for each other, while helping you develop the skills you will need down the road to resolve conflicts in a fair and respectful manner. In addition, you’ll learn what it takes to keep a marriage happy and healthy.
