We are Divorce Lawyers that offer Relationship Advice
The reality is that 50% of all marriages end in Divorce. Couples need to prepare and plan for marriage. It is often overlooked during wedding preparations, especially since weddings usually take precedence over the actual marriage. I understand that my clients need legal information about prenuptial agreements and what the legal repercussions as a result of cohabitation and marriage.
Having conversations prior to marriage or cohabitation with an experienced mediator and lawyer is an investment that can help you and your partner have a strong & healthy relationship. This gives you a better chance for a stable, loving and healthy marriage. These types of conversations helps you and your partner identify weaknesses or blind spots that could become problems during marriage if ignored.
A healthy marriage requires trust, commitment, and cooperation between partners. Pre-marriage counselling helps partners to assess their own processes towards joint decision making, rather than pointing fingers and laying blame on their partner.
Premarital counselling at KDK Legal equips you with a toolkit to help manage potentially harmful issues that can stem from cultural and family differences, as well as differences in values, personalities, experiences, backgrounds, and values.
What is the purpose of premarital counselling/ Clarity Conversations
Premarital counselling has one purpose: to prepare couples for the changing and evolving dynamics of a married life. While some of your partner’s traits may be adorable during the early stages, it may become irritating and frustrating as time goes by. Premarital counselling provides couples with an ideal opportunity to explore relationship dynamics, as well as areas of potential conflict or issues.
What to expect during premarital counselling?
When you and your partner engage in premarital counselling, you’ll be able to improve your relationship before marriage. You’ll also discuss topics related to your marriage, such as:
- Roles and responsibilities in marriage
- Motivations for getting married
- Long term goals and growth
- Issues you may disagree about
- Affection, intimacy, and sex
- Beliefs and values
- Family relationships
- Desire to have children
- Dealing with anger and related emotions
Premarital counselling helps you and your partner improve all of the above, set realistic expectations and develop conflict-resolution skills. It also helps you and your partner establish a positive outlook on seeking help later on, if need be.
If you have questions or are looking to ensure long-term marriage success, KDK Legal can help. Let us help you understand your future, what to expect, how to achieve a healthy long-term marriage if you are considering marriage.
