Are you planning to get married?
Marriage is truly a big life decision. It’s considered a milestone. Something that takes a lot of work, effort and time to reach.
I am happy that you and your partner are on this path.
I want to share with you something that I share with all my premarital couples. It’s a system that focuses on three components. The three components help couples have a toolbox loaded with strategies and education that creates marriage success.
The three components are:
- Identifying the core areas that build and nourish the relationship.
- Focusing on predictors that often lead to separation and divorce.
- Providing education surrounding intimacy, communication, trust, respect, and conflict resolution.
The system that I describe above comes directly from my premarital course. It’s an online guided marriage preparation course that helps couples who are planning to get married build the foundation to a lasting life together.
Below are discussion topics that every couple should have before getting married.
- What does commitment mean to you?
- What are three core values you desire in marriage?
- How do you resolve conflict?
- What do you do when you get upset?
- How do you receive support?
- What is your actual debt?
- How do you plan to deal with family dynamic issues?
- How you plan to raise our kids?
- Do you want kids?
- Are you open to adoption?
- Where do you see yourself in 30 years?
- How do you plan to support me?
- How much space do you need during conflict?
- Are you comfortable doing things on your own?
- What activities would you like to do together?
- How often should we have date nights?
- Where do you want to spend holidays?
- What are your deal breakers?
- Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
- How should we split the chores?
- What are your secrets?
- Where do you plan to raise our family?
- How do you want to plan for retirement?
- Are you willing to move for work?
- Why do you want to marry me?
As you take time to review and reflect on each question, I hope that growth takes place. As a relationship counselor, I use questions, just like the ones I have shared to create growth and understanding.
