Premarital Christian Counseling

Helping Build Successful Christ Centered Marriages

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

According to the Bible, men and women were designed to leave their parent’s home and cling to each other in marriage. We are to become a team. When God enters into the equation, the bond is made even stronger. A three-fold cord is not easily broken, the scripture tells us.

If your marriage is anchored in the Lord, when storms of tribulations come and challenge the unity, your relationship (with God and with your spouse) will remain steadfast.

Christ-focused premarital counseling in Huntington Beach can help you build a foundation that will weather any storm that may come your way. It will also help you and your partner learn how to enjoy one another in the calm and peaceful times.

Why Try Premarital Counseling?

Recent studies have revealed that couples who went to counseling prior to getting married experienced a success rate within their marriage that was 30% higher over couples who did not attend counseling.

If you’re engaged or are a newlywed, you are most likely wondering why you would need premarital counseling. After all, you are probably very happy in your relationship with no big issues at hand.

Most engaged couples are busy planning their wedding and honeymoon and aren’t really concerned about seeking counseling since they aren’t experiencing any problems. But, how successful do you want your marriage to be?

Those who go for premarital counseling stand a much better chance of having a marriage that thrives. Even though everything is rosy now, there are sure to be challenges on down the road. Christian counseling now can help you with things that may crop up in the future.

How Can Counseling Before Marriage Help?

Premarital counseling in Huntington Beach helps with issues regarding:

  • Finances and money
  • Expectations in the marriage bed
  • Making decisions
  • Handling anger
  • Extended family issues
  • Parenting and children
  • Dynamics and roles in relationships
  • Spiritual development and faith as a pair

Taking into consideration all the issues that can contribute to a divorce like infidelity, differences in child raising standards, money problems and so forth, it is wise to find solutions even before the problems occur. The best offense is a defense. We firmly believe that pre-marriage counseling is a very effective way to accomplish this.

What To Expect In Premarital Counseling?

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. – Colossians 3:14

The perfect unity is formed from two people who are not perfect when the bond is focused on Christ. Because neither you nor your partner is perfect, there are sure to be times of trouble and heartbreak too. If you both are committed to each other and to God and have a firm and everlasting foundation, your love will carry you through. Christian counseling prior to marriage is created to assist you in building a foundation that is rock solid. The proven techniques our counselors implement are faith-based and Bible-backed to help ensure the success of your marriage.

How Christian Premarital Counseling in Huntington Beach Works?

An astounding 93% of all Americans say that a fulfilled and happy marriage is important to them.

If you are among the many who want a successful, happy marriage, it is important to be willing to do anything necessary to make it happen. At our center, we approach counseling for couples who are planning to marry by equipping them with unique and useful skills and tools they can use to have a strong marriage that can withstand the test of time. Each counselor uses different techniques to do so but the end goal is always the same – a Godly, happy, and healthy marriage.

Some of the main basics that can be expected from premarital Christ-centered counseling include:

  • Guidance and teaching from a family and marriage counselor who is passionate about helping and highly-trained to do so.
  • Faith-rooted tools that assist in dealing with potential conflicts and struggles within your marriage.
  • Accurate and important information concerning marriage.
  • A safe space that is free of judgment where each individual partner is heard.
  • Evaluation of potential problem areas as well as identification of strong areas within your relationship.
  • Help to establish marital expectations and work through potential issues that might crop up from such.

Counseling prior to marriage is similar to after-marriage counseling, except it has a little different angle. We feel it is wise to nip any potential problems in the bud before they have a chance to rear their ugly heads.

From our perspective and extensive experience, couples who went to premarital counseling tend to be:

  • More sure of their marriage and are confident about their future as a couple.
  • Better able to deal with challenges and conflicts because they are well equipped to do so.
  • Unlikely to find themselves trapped in destructive relationship patterns that are negative in nature.
  • Very likely to enjoy success in counseling for their marriage if it is ever needed.

What exactly is it that constitutes the success of a marriage? We are here to help you find the answer to that question.
