Relationships, Marital & Premarital

We've all heard that "marriage is hard work" but what is the actual "work" they keep talking about?  

Many couples feel like they are going in circles, "working hard" at it, but going nowhere, and getting none of the peace, stability and love we all crave.  So, let's identify your strengths and problem-solving skills to reduce the confusion, pain and conflict. We'll use Prepare/Enrich, a relationship assessment tool that identifies and guides solutions for these and other issues:

  • Compatibility Questions
  • Family of Origin: influence and dynamics
  • Problem Solving
  • Communication
  • Domestic Violence: Emotional, verbal, physical, sexual
  • Infidelity, Trust issues
  • Sexuality
  • Discernment Counseling—Should I stay or should I go?
  • Family Plans and Parenting: Collaboration and Your Future
