Marriage preparation (premarital counseling) highlights why you became engaged and helps you prepare for your marriage. With premarital counseling, you’ll start to address key areas, so that you know how to deal with them when they arise. Whether you and your partner are dating, considering marriage, or currently engaged, premarital counseling will be a step towards deepening your connection and understanding of one another.
