It is so important for couples to go to pre-marrital counseling before getting married. Even couples who have been together for a long time will benefit from counseling because not only will you learn things you didn't know about your future partner, but you will learn very important things about how to BE married, and most importantly, maintain a relationship that will last.
I've recently become aware of a Marriage Prep Workshop that is coming to Orange County. I encourage all of my beautiful brides and handsome grooms to attend and learn a thing or two about how to have a good marriage. The workshop will be taught by Dr. Meredith Hansen, a licensed clinical psychologist based in Newport Beach, California. The workshop will be held on April 21, 2012 at the Fairmont Hotel in Newport Beach.
This workshop will cover...
- How to identify and build upon current relationship strengths
- How to improve communication skills
- How to clarify marital expectations
- Learning how to keep love alive
- Addressing common newlywed hot topics such as money, sex, chores, in-laws, etc.
I found out about this workshop through a friend of mine who works with My Healthy OC. My Healthy OC is a great way to discover anything local, healthy and fun in Orange County. They are a great resource for the OC bride who wants tips for a healthy lifestyle and fun things to do leading up to the wedding! Check out their blog for some all around great information!
