Planning your wedding day is exciting, but the transition to married life can also bring unexpected challenges. Feeling scared, confused, or even frustrated is completely normal – you're not alone! Many couples experience a range of emotions during this period of change and adjustment.

At Couples Help, I've seen countless engaged couples facing anxieties and conflict. While arguments might seem alarming, they're often a sign that you're both invested in making your future marriage work. It's a chance to learn and grow together.

Think back to a time when you communicated beautifully and felt deeply connected. Now, imagine those skills amplified, ready to weather any storm life throws your way. That's the power of premarital counseling.
