“Love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning.”

ABOUT PREMARITAL COUNSELING WORK

Couples who commit to laying a solid foundation in pre-commitment counseling reduce the risk of divorce by 25%.  This is because precommitment work helps us identify potential issues early on and develop new strategies to work through them.  

Premarital coaching helps couples connect their individual and shared values with their future goals and vision.  It's a purposeful step for couples who want to build a purpose-driven loving partnership.

Finally, pre-commitment counseling is really useful for couples who want to avoid falling into family patterns r cultural misunderstandings that often lead to distance and resentment in long-term relationships.  It helps you identify the roles, responsibilities, and resources you share and develop intentional strategies for managing them- and adapting them over the years.

"Premarital" vs "Pre-commitment" Coaching

Marriage isn't for everyone.  But commitment is for anyone.  I like to call this work pre-commitment to include all the clients I see who are considering sharing a home, buying a house, getting a dog, starting a family, having a commitment ceremony and more.  

 

WHY PRE-COMMITMENT COACHING WORKS

Couples who choose to invest in their relationship intentionally and early demonstrate deep commitment to each other by showing up and diving in.  Lots of couples say they want to create a loving relationship, but these folks are willing to put their time, energy, and money where their mouth is. 

They do the work necessary to build a conscious commitment.
