When a couple is engaged or thinking about getting engaged they may come to premarital counseling. Sometimes these couples come in because there is some sort of conflict. Other times they are just looking for a safe place to discuss relationship topics in which they have not gone into depth before. Premarital counseling can help the individuals feel comfortable, knowing that they are on the same page when thinking about how their future relationship will be. Some common topics discussed are money, children, sex, in-laws, and lifestyle.
