Premarital Counseling Might Prevent Divorce
Most reports agree that approximately fifty percent of marriages today will end in divorce. This is even true of couples who cohabitate before marriage. But the marriage and family landscape is not without a glimmer of hope for couples who desire to work towards a life-long commitment to each other. Premarital counseling or training has been shown to strengthen marriages and help to alleviate the potential for divorce.
Marriage involves many factors that a young couple may not be fully aware of. Many of these factors involve legal ramifications and require an experienced and dedicated legal advisor. If you are considering marriage or are married and need legal counsel, please contact the Denton family attorneys at Alexander & Associates by calling 972-420-6560.
What to Expect From Premarital Counseling
Premarital counseling has been linked with a 30% increase in the likelihood of a successful marriage. By discussing and considering important factors in marriage relationships, a couple may be better prepared to handle potential conflict or avoid that conflict all together by having a format for that discussion before the event arises. The topics that are typically covered in premarital counseling include the following.
- Family Relationships
- Parenting Practices and Children
- Affectionate Behavior and Sex
- Making Important Decisions
- Roles in a Marriage
- Financial Decisions
These topics as well as others are typically covered in a counseling environment that can help to alleviate future tension and can provide thoughtful insight into topics that might not be discussed in the normal course of a relationship before marriage.
