•Design, build up & nurture your marital life with the help of pre/post marriage counselling.

The need and Scope

Although it is said that marriages are made in heaven and it is considered as one of the sweetest moments of our life, which may end up in contrary and not all the couples are lucky enough to have a perpetual marital bliss due to improper selection of life partner. Every couple may have some dispute at some point in time, but some couples face serious problems regarding their marriages which leads to divorce and these problems may also give rise to frustration, depression, conduct disorder and even suicidal motive among them.
Marriage is not a fun factor. It is perhaps the most complex and multidimensional human relationship and marital choice is perhaps, the most crucial decision of a lifetime. Its effects are lasting and highly significant, not only for the well being and happiness of the couple, but also for the welfare of their children, family and for society as a whole. But unfortunately, couples may not be equipped to deal with the challenges, they face in marriage. Today life is very hectic. People experience tremendous pressure in all fronts. Families are mostly nuclear in size and attitude. There is no bond created by tradition, heritage or religion, leaving most young people in an atmosphere in which they do not know what to expect from their partners during their marriage. Married couples face problems which may have developed for many reasons. Faith or mutual trust is the foundation of any marital relationship and when that faith is shaken, the foundation becomes unstable. Also phenomenal change has taken place in the status of women. Strangely enough men and women accept each other as equals at workplace, but the scenario at home is entirely different. Women are rebelling against such automatic role allocation and are less willing to accept injustice, oppression or second class treatment within a family. Thus a need is felt for proper guidance to both partners to make them understand role-sharing in married life. Marital discord arising from such role issue or any other issue is the constant for many couples and if not addressed earlier then, it may end up in divorce. The percentage of arranged marriages in India is still high and in such cases couples don’t have the opportunity to know each other at the pre-marital stage. It may cause many problems in post-marital stage.
All over the world, divorce rates are in rise. In India the percentage of divorce has increased from about 5% in 1974 to about 30%. At present the rate is increasing steadily. Invariably the cause is found to be either physical incompatibility or emotional incongruity between partners. Research has found that happily married couples have lower rates of illness, depression and conflict in and outside their marriage. Well adjusted partners make easier transitions to parenting and tend to be more supportive parents. For most people, marital satisfaction is the best index of family satisfaction; which is the best predictor of well being.
Observations have been shown that in 90% cases, the trauma of unsuccessful, unhappy marriage, separation or divorce can be avoided if the couple undergoes “Marriage Counselling” just before they tie the knot. People are realizing that it is high time they ascertain the compatibility of the couple on more practical and realistic grounds by undergoing counselling and certain medical check ups.
It is no more the stars and planetary configurations in one’s horoscope alone which make or break up a marriage. Pre-marriage counsellors and their tips also play a key role in ensuring a successful married life. It has been established that couples exposed to pre-marriage counselling, have a better chance of coping successfully in their marital life, than those who have not.

The Way of Counselling

Pre-marriage counselling is a psychological and allied counselling, given to prospective wives and husbands before marriage. It plays an important role in building healthy marriage, enabling the couple to understand better each other’s family culture, socio-economic status, personality traits, thoughts and emotions, sexual orientation & preferences etc. to overcome challenges and difficulties, that might occur in marital relationship. Pre-marriage counselling also assists one in selecting the right life partner for him/her and in determining if he/she is fully ready physically and mentally for marriage. It clears up misconception about sex, talks about issues like interpersonal relationship, intimacy and family planning.People are fast becoming aware of sexually transmitted diseases and they want to be sure about the physical well being of both partners before they get married. During counselling blood group matching and other tests may also conducted with the consent of the counsellee to diagnose physical incompatibility. Parents may at times be unaware of certain conflicts and concern regarding their child. This is where pre-marital counselling helps to bridge the gap.
