Pre-Marital sessions are very valuable and can enhance communication and intimacy before stepping over the threshold into marriage. It is important to create a firm foundation in your relationship and pre-marital sessions encourage you both to do so. It is also a discovery process in which you learn about the uniqueness of the individual you are about to marry. Jen Paul of Life Passages offers pre-marital sessions. My approach is that of a mentor as I have been married since 1994. I offer my compassion, guidance, personal knowledge and a sense of humor as we approach the pre-marital sessions.
Here's how it works! Typically there are four to five sessions in total. You and your fiance will receive four questionnaires that include the following topics: dreams and interests, friend and family relationships, communication, five love languages, money, vocation, children, health, spirituality and sexuality. After you complete a questionnaire, Jen reads it and provides feedback and mediation during the session. The session can take place via skype, face time, a phone call or in-person if you reside in the Flagstaff area.
Pre-marital sessions are offered on a sliding fee scale of $50-75/hour
Often times Jen will also discover beautiful characteristics about your relationship during the pre-marital sessions which are then woven into your wedding ceremony.
If you are considering pre-marital sessions, I suggest: don't go to the altar without them!
