Premarital counseling is often experienced as an exciting event on the road to getting married. In a busy and sometimes stressful time of wedding planning, you get to slow down and just have it be about the two of you. You will examine, with the help of your therapist, what qualities you possess that make you an excellent match, as well as areas of difference that you will need to watch out for as time goes by. Premarital counseling usually lasts 2–4 sessions, depending on how much comes up for you during your sessions.
