Premarital therapy is a type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage. Premarital therapy helps a couple identify weaknesses or issues that may become a problem during marriage. Premarital therapy is based on strengthening and better understanding your relationship. By better understanding the relationship a couple can constructively prepare for future challenges and conflicts that everyone will inevitably face at some point in their marriage.
