Before AND After – Creating your “Happily Ever After”

We all move into marriage in the springtime of joy and anticipation. The future is filled with unspeakable optimism and possibility. Love hopes all things, but it’s important to start your marriage with a strong foundation of communication, trust, intimacy, affection, expectations, and approach to goals, among other things.

How We Support Couples Before Marriage

Our premarital program begins with this thought: couples who learn to invest in and care for their relationship build their own “happily ever after” story. We want this to be your story. Each therapist at Well Marriage Center has extensive training in relationships, and will work with you to set your goals for marriage. The number and length of meetings can vary from therapist to therapist. However, we all share common themes: we explore past personal histories and your dating story, talk through present relationship strengths and dynamics, and discuss shared goals, vision, and hopes for your future together.

How We Support Couples After Marriage

What couples find most helpful is we then meet again twice after your wedding, once at the 6 month point of your marriage and then again around your 1 year anniversary. Couples find these 50 minute conversations to be incredibly beneficial because you are able to talk about your real life and real marriage. Couples reflect on the beginning of their marriage and talk through real life adjustments and dynamics. You benefit from a trained professional helping you explore what you’re doing well and the emerging strengths of your relationship. You also create a safe space for whatever life hands you along the way…we support you from dating till “death do you part!” ;)

Why Choose Well Marriage Center

Modern therapy has evolved with changes in neuroscience, approaches to emotional development, and advancements in research – how therapists approach marriage counseling is no exception. For example, in the past, therapists would often ask, “what seems to be the problem?” Instead, our approach first asks, “Why did you fall in love in initially?” This subtle, positive shift reminds couples they are on the same team and helps set them up for longer-term success from the very beginning.

When you work with a specialized therapist, you are partnering with a compassionate guide who has extra training and deeper skills, someone who can help you address and resolve relational issues like trauma, abandonment, insecure attachments, communication in relationships, conflict, separation adjustments, infidelity, and more. You have a greater chance of getting to the root of concerns that spring up between you and your partner. 

As experts in our field, we don’t run out of ideas, insight, and tools that you can use to improve your relationship dynamics. 

You can search for a couples therapist near you and see their specializations. We have experts in 6 states and serve 22 cities, with both virtual and in-person therapy options.
