For premarital counseling, I utilize the PREPARE / ENRICH Assessment. It is an assessment tool which provides rich information about each individual. We process the results of the assessment together from a place of curiosity. My hope is to strengthen areas of growth and validate the strengths of each partner and the relationship.
It can feel like you already know everything about each other or that you will figure out any concerns in the future. Problem solving is a lot simpler before there are hurt feelings or anger in the relationship. Invest in the relationship at the beginning and see the positive impact of that investment throughout your relationship.
My recommended plan:
