Premarital Counseling

 

 

 

 

One of the most important decisions you will make in your life is who you will marry.  Receiving godly, premarital counsel before getting married could save you from a lot of heartache and disappointment and result in a satisfying and joy-filled marriage partnership.  HJCC recommends that you begin premarital counseling 6-12 months prior to your wedding date.  

 

HJCC tailors your premarital sessions using PREPARE/ENRICH, a customized assessment tool that is completed online prior to your first session.  It is one of the most widely used assessments for premarital counseling.  

 

Premarital Counseling Can Help Couples:

 

  • Discover God’s design for marriage, sex, & family

  • Evaluate if & why God brought you together

  • Explore your strength & growth areas

  • Explore roles & responsibilities

  • Explore parenting styles

  • Understand & embrace personality differences

  • Explore family-of-origin issues, patterns, assumptions, & traditions

  • Identify & manage major stressors

  • Determine healthy boundaries with in-laws, extended families, & blended families

  • Strengthen communication & conflict resolution skills

  • Discuss financial planning & budgeting

  • Develop personal, couple, & family goals

 

Premarital services are customizable to fit your budget and time constraints. Payment plans are available, so contact Malika to discuss your options. 

 

Also, note that Georgia State Code states that marriage licenses provided to couples who have completed a qualifying premarital education program will be discounted.  This premarital package meets the requirements to receive that discount.
