Congratulations for taking your relationship seriously enough to take steps to build the marriage you want!
We have spent time helping new and old relationships through both big and small challenges, and have been shown a lot about what it takes to build a successful long-term marriage. In our experience, we would strongly say that any time planning your marriage now will be a huge investment in your future happiness.
When you buy a new television, you are given an owners manual to help you with any problems that come up. When you buy a new computer, there is a customer service line you can call with questions. When you buy a new car, you may receive a warranty promising to repair any problems that occur. When you get married, you have none of these.
When you are in a marriage, you and your spouse are the owner's manual , the technical service support, and the warranty rolled into one. You are the main people who will help your relationship be the one you've always dreamed of, or one you have second thoughts about.
By acting early in your relationship to build patterns that fit both of your needs, to agree on differences, or to learn how to solve problems, you give yourself a much better chance of success throughout your marriage.
The State of Minnesota allows for a discount on Marriage License fees when premarital education is completed by a qualified person. This requirement is for 12 hours of education, which includes taking a questionnaire, direct counseling or assigned work done on your own as a couple. If this an important part of your premarital counseling goals, clarify this when scheduling your first appointment so we get you to the the right therapist.
