Marital life is like a rollercoaster, it has its ups and downs. Most couples enter their married life with excitement about the ups and are usually not prepared or unaware of the difficulties that may come in their marital life. Prewedding counselling in simple terms refers to couples counselling before the wedding. This counselling helps couples prepare for their married life, and is very crucial. The couple may have a clash of thoughts arising due to a differnce in opinion or perpectives. 

Prewedding counselling guides and supports couples to prepare them thoroughly for their upcoming married life. The counselling period helps them to build and improve their relationship and develop a better understanding of eachother s needs.

Prewedding counselling helps couples in the following areas:

During prewedding counselling, with the help of the counsellor, couples are prompted to question/answer or discuss the uncomfortable and difficult conversations that they usually avoid as it may cause distress. When these issues are addressed beforehand the couple can then transition into their married life smoothly.

The importance of prewedding counselling are as follows:

1. Prewedding counselling helps the couple enhance their ways of communication. They work together with the counsellor to set some realistic goals for their marriage and future. Counselling helps them to build skills for conflict and behavioral management.

2. The initial sessions of the counselling prepare the couple to understand the depth and significance of marital relationships to prepare them mentally for any hurdles. Changing environments and co-habitation can cause some stress and anxiety. Counselling can help adjusting to these new changes. 

3. The next part of the counselling sessions helps the couple with compatibility. Counsellors assess their compatibility in all aspects, not just a single quality. Issues pertaining to inter-religion/caste/status marriages are also disclosed and discussed to avoid any future problems that might root from it.

4. Counselling is also important for the couple to address areas relating to responsibilities and roles for their future life. Some aspects are- handling relative and societal affairs, professional life, lifestyles, gender equalities, ideas relating to having children, etc.  

5. Due to an increase in divorce rates, prewedding counselling has become all the more popular. It is highly recommended for couples to add prewedding online counselling in their wedding plan as it holds equal/more importance for their ‘happily ever after’.
