Escape Singledom: 7 Reasons To Go To Marriage Counseling Before You Get Married

I’m not going to lie, I did not want to go to Marriage Counseling at first. I don’t like to talk about myself and I don’t like people knowing my life. But I realized that this wasn’t about outside people knowing my life, it was about my future husband knowing my life, my baggage, my thoughts, my experiences, my preferences… and even I managed to learn a couple of things about myself throughout this process.

I know how great of an experience (no matter how uncomfortable) that Marriage Counseling was to Jay and I, so I want to give you 7 Reasons To Go To Marriage Counseling Before You Get Married:

  1. You discuss issues in a safe environment that you would have otherwise let simmer until an instance created a fire.
  2. You talk about topics that you might not have even thought that you should.
  3. You learn information about your partner that might not have come up in regular conversation.
  4. You are able to go into your marriage without bringing along any regrets or old issues that haven’t been dealt with.
  5.  You receive advice and counsel that helps you learn how to live in a way that aligns with God’s word/plan.
  6. You learn new things about yourself that might not have been discovered without these conversations.
  7. You learn to communicate better with your partner and with God.
