Premarital Preparation


So many couples spend countless hours making the necessary reparations for their wedding. And there are a million things to do. But often in the busyness of the wedding preparations the marriage itself is forgotten.It is important to make proper preparations for the wedding itself but it is vital to make the proper preparations for the marriage relationship.

When you think about it the wedding is really about the marriage. It is not about having a great party. The wedding is very important and should be a great celebration. But it is a celebration of the commitment that a man and woman are making to each other in becoming husband-and-wife for lifetime.

There seems to be no end to the books, magazines, and websites with information about weddings. But far too little information available for newly engaged couples. The good news is that there are good premarital preparation resources available, you may just have to look a little harder to find him.

Maybe one of the reasons that people avoid involving themselves in marital preparation is that they are afraid it will be a lot of hard work. And with everything else they’ve got going on in terms of the wedding and just day-to-day life, they may not feel like they have the time or energy for pre-marriage preparation.

But did you know that there is even a marriage preparation course online? It is called the at-home marriage preparation course. It is designed to be used primarily by the couple on their own. It does not require a lot of reading and study. And though there is a time and a place for doing that, this particular course contains marriage preparation exercises which get the couple engaged with each other in conversations about key areas within their relationship.

People learn best when they are involved in the learning process. If a person simply sits and listens to a presentation about marriage or even listens to the advice of a marriage counselor, not much of it is likely to be remembered and make an impact on the marriage. It is when couples are actively involved in discovering things about themselves and about their partners – and working through any differences that true growth takes place.

There is a role for different kinds of marriage preparation. A Christian counselor or a licensed marriage therapist can be of great help to a couple. Maybe for instance the couple is getting hung up on a particular relationship issue and need some help in knowing how to work through it successfully.

A trained third-party can offer observations and even teach skills of communication to help the couple work toward solutions. There are also marriage seminars, marriage books, and church marriage classes that can all be of great benefit to a couple entering marriage.

It is good advice to any couple getting ready to be married to do as much as they can and utilize as many marriage preparation resources as they possibly can. And once the marriage has started, that does not mean that the learning should come to a stop. The relationship will continue to grow or it will stagnate and then eventually go backwards. It is important that a couple continues to avail themselves of marriage building materials.
