Premarital counseling in OKC may include discussing future topics that have the potential to produce arguments such as raising children with religion or talk about what you will do if in-laws try to interfere. Having a plan of action helps tremendously when talking about how you will handle serious issues when they arise. Premarital counseling helps you talk about any negative feelings you may have and catch them before they have the chance to fester and become a larger issue. Are you ready to start.

One of the most important aspects of any marriage is effective communication. I cannot stress enough how important healthy communication is in any relationship, but especially a marriage. We hear so often that many problems ultimately began when a spouse stopped investing in the relationship and the communication started to break down. Eventually people will grow distant and even resentful if distance enters the relationship. Healthy communicating with one another can break that feeling of distance and usher intimacy and love back into the relationship.
In addition, premarital counseling can assist you with more than understanding feelings and how you communicate with them. Many times people enter marriage not knowing who they are. They want a great marriage but have never taken the time to get to know who they really are behind the facebook page the world sees. And it’s nearly impossible to build an amazing marriage with someone who hasn’t figured out who they are or possibly doesn’t have specific goals on who they want to become in this marriage.
We also want to walk you through one of the leading causes of divorce. Finances. I know, I know, hardly anyone wants to do the work here because it is often a hot topic and can spark shame, fear and even anxiety. We help you get honest with each other in what your spending habits may be, outstanding loans you may have, any debts you may have and ultimately how to work past this. We will help you create budgets, not only for your special day, but for your life beyond the wedding day. Many times ongoing financial problems can steer even the healthiest marriage off course. In premarital counseling we address these issues in advance and create a structure that helps you plan how you will succeed. A success that starts today and continues to grow into an amazing marital future.
Premarital Counseling is FUN!
Did you know that premarital counseling can be fun…really fun? Think about it. We will give you all kinds of topics and activities to do on date nights and help you plan an amazing future together. What could be better than that right? We will help you discover new things about each other that you didn’t know. Whether you have been dating for years or months there is always something new to learn about one another. As humans, we are constantly changing and maturing into who we were created to be. At 40 years old you are not going to be the same person you were at 30 and that is normal! And that can be a really good thing if you continue working on yourself and marriage! The key is to grow together as a couple and not grow in opposite directions. Yes, you absolutely need to continue growing individually, but as you pursue God and your spouse he will bring you progressively closer together. Change can be amazingly good and you don’t have to fear it! We want to give you the tools now so when these days come you can be confident that your relationship is set up for a win.
At New Vision Counseling we want to join you during this exciting time as you prepare to say, “I do!” We want to facilitate important conversations and help you identify areas of strengths and weaknesses in your relationship. Nothing can prepare you for every challenge down the road, but identifying potential pitfalls now can make a difference in how you handle those challenges in the future.
