When all is generally well in our relationship, it may seem unnecessary to sign up for premarital (or pre-engagement) couples counselling. If our relationship has more positives than negatives, we figure those positives will help us overcome any future problems down the road.
But it turns out that waiting for problems to arise in a relationship before taking action isn’t a sound strategy. It may take a while, but over time we will grow apart from our partner if we don’t iron out the wrinkles in the relationship early on. Furthermore, research shows that couples who attended couples counselling before marriage had a 30 percent higher marital success rate than those who did not.
Taking the proactive approach can pay dividends for your future relationship. Lasting Connection Retreats™ move you beyond the tangibles of furniture and finances and take you on a deep dive into communication and sex, bonding and connection, conflict and repair.
