The Benefits of Planning For Your Marriage

Everyone knows that planning a wedding and a honeymoon takes hours of investment, and let’s not forget about the cost! I recently got married myself and am familiar with the to and fro of saying yes to every little additional detail and then questioning if I truly needed that detail on my wedding day. I know I’m not alone on this one.

What I didn’t see when I was planning my wedding, was how I was going to plan for my marriage—which is the whole reason for planning a wedding! On many wedding planning timelines, planning for your marriage is either skipped or slightly mentioned. I have partnered with San Antonio Weddings to share the importance of planning for your marriage, as you plan for your big day!

So, how can you plan for your marriage? The answer is with premarital counseling. It is a time for couples to learn the proper expectations and skills needed to navigate through life together. By creating healthy habits of how you respond to each other and interact, premarital counseling will help you get through common relationship issues, while still maintaining commitment, friendship and intimacy. 

Here is what you learn when you plan for your marriage:

  • Practical strategies to maintain a happy relationship
  • How to handle differences when it comes to house chores, managing money, raising a family and showing intimacy
  • The importance of openly discussing relationship roles and expectations
  • How to engage in self-care (i.e. stress management, health and wellness, and nutrition)
  • How to increase communication skills and conflict management skills
    • Staying present when having a difficult conversation
    • Learning to not shut down
  • You will take an assessment to learn your strengths as a couple as well as your areas of improvement
  • You can save $60 toward your Texas marriage license and waive the 72-hour waiting period (Offered through the Twogether in Texas Program)

By taking the time to plan for your marriage and build your relationship skills toolkit, you and your significant other will be able to live the happily ever after you two have envisioned. Who doesn’t want that? If you find that it may be too rushed to get this planning in before your big day, no worries! You can still invest in your marriage after you’ve said ‘I Do’.

As a newlywed, planning our unforgettable day that we shared with our loved ones meant so much to us! I simply want to remind you that a beautiful and memorable wedding day is purchased (regardless of the cost), but a marriage is created between two people who take the time to learn the right skills to keep their relationship balanced and strong.
