Our answer to that is an enthusiastic 'yes'! First we should say, if your wedding plans were delayed or cancelled we're so sorry to hear that. In the past many weeks we've spoken with so many couples who have had their wedding plans thwarted by the pandemic, and we can imagine how disappointing that must be.
With an uncertain timeline of when engaged couples can have their ceremony, yes, we absolutely recommend that you engage in premarital relationship therapy as soon as possible. The research on couples suggests this as well, that on average couples attend relationship therapy about 6 years later than they needed to.
What is so valuable about premarital counseling is less about the type of therapy it is and more about the time period of a relationship within which it occurs. The challenges we will all face in our marriages are inevitable and unavoidable, but what we can do is to get ahead of those difficulties by learning skills and practices that can greatly reduce the common pitfalls of long-term relationships.
So it's never too early to start improving your relationship with help from a trained relationship therapist. It can only help.
