Premarital Preparation using the PREPARE Marriage Inventory
Thorough premarital preparation can reduce a couple’s probability of divorce by 30%. At Compass, we use a marriage inventory and about eight followup sessions with the couple to help them get ready for one of the most important transitions in their lives.
A marriage inventory is a diagnostic questionnaire that assesses strengths and growth areas in a couple’s relationship. The results are used to discuss and work through any issues or concerns that are highlighted by the assessment. PREPARE is heavily researched and well-documented for its accuracy and results. In addition to discussing the assessment results, the engaged (or pre-engaged/seriously dating) couple will learn critical communication and conflict resolution skills, as well as many other concepts and behaviors that have proven effectiveness in creating successful marriages.
Fee for the premarital preparation program, including the PREPARE assessment and all sessions, is $249.
