Premarital Counseling

Congratulations on this EXCITING time in your journey!!!

As you plan your wedding day there are so many things to get done. You may have been planning for this event your whole life. While most people are hopeful that their marriages will last, the fact remains that 40%-50% of marriages will end in divorce.

One of the most important things that usually get overlooked before you say “I do” is preparing for your marriage. Individuals who engage in premarital counseling can reduce the chance of divorce up to 30%
