Pre-Marital, Couples Therapy & Marriage Tune-Up
It's always encouraged that couples seek pre-marital counseling before they tie the knot and that counseling helps young couples by giving them the tools they need to overcome the obstacles they will endure. Long after the vows have been exchanged every couple should take their relationship in for a little maintenance. The marriage tune-up is just that! Just as your car needs its tires rotated and oil changed, so does your marriage. Often times we keep up the maintenance on our vehicles to avoid major car issues in the long run. Maintenance is to prevent long-term damage due to wear and tear. Our marriages need that same maintenance.
People in relationships seek counseling for any number of reasons, from power struggles and communication problems, to sexual dissatisfaction and infidelity. Though counseling is recommended as soon as discontentment arises in a relationship, studies show that on average partners will not seek therapy until they have been unhappy for more than six years. In some cases, couples who have already decided to separate may pursue therapy in order to say that they tried everything that they could before divorce. Our marriage tune-up is designed to address issues before they make us extremely unhappy or uncomfortable. Like the maintenance on our cars, a marriage tune-up is about preventing long term irreparable damage.
So we encourage every couple, whether a member of NDCC church or not, to sign-up for our marriage tune-up life group. Bring your marriage in for a little maintenance to ensure that you and your spouse are equipped to continue avoiding the many pitfalls that can get the best of us all.
