The Value of Premarital Counseling Build a successful mar- riage with the right tools. A study by the National Council on Family Relations found that couples engag- ing in premarital counseling have stronger marriages than those who do not. Premarital counselees also better at resolving conflict and adjust to married life. So if you are considering marriage, schedule premarital coun- seling into your plans.
