Premarital Counseling Questions: Can You Do Premarital Counseling Online?
In our modern era, much of what is important happens online. Bills, shopping, relationships, and more. So of course, our modern couples are interested to know if they can meet online for premarital counseling too.
In fact, doing online premarital counseling works extremely well for many couples. This is especially true for couples where one (or both) people frequently travel, who have busy schedules, who live in rural areas with few options for premarital counseling locally, or who may live long distance from each other.
Our model of premarital counseling is particularly effective in an online format, because it’s structured. We help you strengthen your relationship in six main areas:
- How to help each other feel loved and respected
- How to communicate with each other
- How to deal with inevitable conflict constructively, without it turning into a fight
- How to grow together, for an interesting, fresh, enjoyable marriage
- How to get on the same page about important things like money, parenting and more
- How to support each other’s hopes and dreams, both as individuals and as a couple
Depending on your relationship’s strengths and “growth opportunities,” we can help you both learn key skills for achieving peace and harmony in all or a few of those areas. Or you may have other things on your mind that you’d like to address and resolve before getting married. That is completely fine too. We can adjust our process to fit your needs.
As well as online premarital counseling works for many of our couples, there are situations where it is not a good idea. If you are having major issues in your relationship where there is a lot of anger and emotional reactivity, or you are dealing with more serious concerns like drug or alcohol addiction, or domestic violence, you should seek help from a qualified provider in your community.
But under most circumstances, meeting online for premarital counseling works beautifully. Here’s how it works: We see couples for premarital counseling online through Skype, FaceTime and Google Meets. If you would like to meet in person at one of our Denver area locations (Denver / Cherry Creek, Broomfield, or Denver Tech Center) that is also an option. Some couples like to do a combination of in-person and online premarital counseling. Either way, the first step in getting started with online premarital counseling, either with our “I DO!” premarital program, or private premarital counseling is to schedule a free consultation session with one of the expert marriage counselors on our team.
After you schedule your consultation (either by calling our 24/7 receptionist, or through our online calendar) your premarital counselor will be following up with you to get your online contact information. They’ll call you at the time of your appointment. If you are doing a three way call, the premarital counselor will call both of you at the same time.
Hope this helps you learn more about what to expect with online premarital counseling!

How Much Does Premarital Counseling Cost?

What To Expect In Premarital Counseling?
Good, evidence based premarital counseling generally starts with an assessment. There are various ways to do this. Sometimes you’ll take an online quiz to determine your strengths and growth areas.

Is There Secular, Non-religious Premarital Counseling?
While the vast majority of people who engage in premarital counseling do so as a requirement of their religious organization, it is also unfortunately true that doing a worksheet or meeting a couple of times with a pastor is not sufficient to actually equip couples with the relationship skills necessary to manage inevitable conflict, communicate well under stress, and… Read more
