Is Premarital Counseling right for me?

Premarital coaching and counseling both help couples appreciate one another’s differences while cultivating a lifetime of romance. Premarital counseling however is different than MarriageTeam’s Premarital Coaching Program. New couples learn to stand strong when life becomes difficult and couples who participate in premarital coaching are 31% less likely to divorce.

Premarital coaching uses a personalized online inventory to help couples prepare for marriage.  The insights gained from the inventory are combined with enhanced relationship skills and our coaching program to help couples form a lasting connection.

We offer certified coaches trained specifically for our premarital program, and not professional counselors.

Couples meet with their coaches for 6 to 12 sessions.  Sessions are typically 1.5 to 2.5 hours each.

Since birthed in church and prayer back in 2006, our Confidential 2-on-2 program has proven nearly 90% effective even for couples considering divorce. Since 2002, couple testimonies rave about marriages renewed, restored, and even resurrected.

During each of your 12 weekly, 2+ hour coaching sessions, certified MarriageTeam coaches work with you prayerfully so you can address your specific issues based on biblical truth using proven tools and skills.

We are a marriage ministry and money is not our goal or motivation.  All we request is that you invest in your marriage whatever you can afford.  What you decide to pay isn’t an issue for us, but we find couples who invest in their future, show up to make it better and have a high program completion and huge success rate.

What Happens Next?


After we have received: 1) intake forms from both of you, 2) Signed Coach Agreements from both of you; and 3) you have made your payment, we will arrange for you to take the PREPARE premarital inventory.

This is a snapshot of your relationship that your coaches will use as a tool in coaching. You will receive an email from PREPARE-ENRICH with a link and password to complete the inventory online. Each of you need to complete this inventory.

When you both have completed the inventory, we will find a coach couple for you. The search typically takes 5-7 business days. We will email their names to you, and they will call you to arrange the first meeting.

If you have any questions during the process, please call the office (360) 450-6042!

Premarital Premarital Counseling

The following premarital coaching reviews illustrate how effective the coaching process is in helping couples apply new insights into their relationship.
Premarital coaching has helped our relationship dramatically. We were not married or even engaged at the start, but got engaged during coaching. Coaching has helped us identify, voice and come up with solutions to problem areas. It has also helped us re-prioritize. Before coaching, we were disconnected, frustrated and had lots of conflict. Now, we are both very aware of our actions, words, goals and putting into practice what we’ve been learning.

Premarital coaching was life changing. My fiancé and I didn’t know what to expect when we get married, but now we have a better understanding of marriage. We learned how to better problem solve, communicate and listen with our hearts. It was a great experience for us and we loved every minute of the sessions.

Start your marriage off right.

“Every engaged couple needs this. The session on expectations alone was worth it.”

Our coaches brought a very unique point of view to the table, since they were coached themselves. My wife and I decided to do this as “pre-marriage” coaching. We didn’t have any major problems, but our coaching helped to uncover a few issues we had not thought about, and gave us strategies on how to deal with new issues when they come up. We feel like we are very happy right now and our coaching will help keep us on track. I would say our relationship before coaching was strong, with a few weak points, but now it is even stronger, and we have the peace of mind that we have the tools for the future to keep everything on track. As a result of coaching, I feel that we are more connected. I also am aware of some of my wife’s concerns about our relationship, which I did not know before, and knowing is half the battle! It exceeded all of our expectations, especially for a program that is so inexpensive. It would have cost of $1,000’s of dollars to do this through a doctor or counselor, and I believe having both a husband and wife, especially one who have gone through marriage difficulties themselves, is the absolute best way help couples with their marriage.

I loved every minute of our coaching experience!  Our coaches were able to provide us with the insights of what marriage is about. All this information made me and my fiancé feel closer together. It also helped us to see what the other partner was going through when dealing with the same situation. Just an eye opener! I was not able to communicate on a very close level to my fiancé. I was afraid to tell him some things. I didn’t feel that he would understand it or just would get mad at me.  After going through a couple of sessions, that improved greatly! I personally feel more open with my fiancé. I learned that a man’s thinking process and decision making process is totally different from a woman’s. I learned that when there are misunderstandings, it’s not because my fiancé stopped loving me. It’s just he as a man has a different perspective.
