Premarital Counseling in Bethesda, MD
Counseling before marriage is a great way to strengthen your relationship for a brighter future.
Premarital counseling is a great way for couples throughout Washington D.C. to strengthen their relationships in preparation for married life. While marriage counseling often focuses on conflict resolution, premarital counseling equips couples to handle marriage successfully through an in-depth evaluation of your preferred love languages. Dr. Busse will help you learn effective communication techniques and set realistic expectations for the marriage. Any fears or toxic resentments can also be addressed so you can begin your life together with a clean slate.
The entire purpose of pre marriage counseling is to set couples up for success. Chances are, you know your spouse-to-be pretty well and have a good idea of the things they value in a relationship. This close bone makes now the best time for you and your partner to sit down and discuss what your marriage will look like in the future. Dr. Busse can help tackle potential struggles before they come up so you can deal with issues effectively in the future. Here are a few topics that are typically addressed in counseling before marriage:
- Conflict resolution – what has caused fights? What has helped end them?
- Personal values – what are each person’s core values and where do they come from?
- Financial decisions – who will pay the bills? Will incomes be combined? What budget will be set?
- Career decisions – will both partners work or just one? How will this affect the home?
Children – if you want children, how many and how long will you wait? What values will you impart on your children?
- And several others
