Why You Shouldn’t “Toss” Pre-Marital Counseling
This week we are taking a look at wedding planning with a psychological twist. After all, a wedding is about so much more than what color flowers you choose or whether or not you wear a veil.
A wedding is a celebration of your marriage. And while the terms wedding and marriage are often used interchangeably, they actually describe two very different things. Therefore, not only do couples need to navigate wedding planning, but marriage planning as well.
With us to dig deeper into this idea is Annabelle Seife, Ph.D. Annabelle is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Therapists of New York and the Founder of Before the Leap, a fun and interactive premarital workshop where couples learn and practice the skills needed for happy, lasting relationships.
