So, you met someone that you really hit it off with and now you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Well, falling in love is the easy part, marriage takes hard work and dedication and if you are not prepared before you dive in, you may find yourself overwhelmed.

Before you take that walk down the aisle, you both should mutually agree to take some Premarital Classes. These classes are often offered by your local church and by licensed therapists. During these classes, the sessions will revolve around what each person expects from the other in a marriage, what roles each will play if any and how things, like money and child-rearing, will be taken care of.

Studies have shown that premarital therapy reduces divorce rates and sets couples up for success by preparing them for the things they may not have thought of beforehand.
