The Benefits of Premarital Counseling Creating positive marriage resolutions. It’s easy to get emotional when discussing heavy-duty topics like money, sex, and kids. An experienced counselor can help guide the conversation and prevent you and your partner from going off on a tangent, thereby losing focus and not accomplishing anything. Learning (or improving) conflict resolution skills. If you’ve had some major tiffs or blowouts in the past (and who hasn’t?) then you both know how you tend to react during arguments, whether it’s wielding the silent treatment and pouting or yelling and name-calling. If you’re being honest with yourself, then there’s probably room for improvement. A counselor will teach you how to listen and communicate more effectively; more specifically, they’ll also tell you what to say (and not say) in order to reach a happy solution. Getting realistic expectations about timing. For example, if you come to an agreement that the kids topic is off the table for two years, then you won’t be left anxious or frustrated when you want to delve into that plan and your partner isn’t ready. This also applies to major purchases like buying a house. Avoiding toxic resentments. Clear the air about resentments you’ve been hanging onto throughout your relationship. Dismantling fears about marriage.might come from a divorced family, or from a dysfunctional background where fighting and manipulation was the norm.
