When the bloom is on the roses and love is in the air...
you seldom think about making agreements about how to live, love and work together to maintain the magic and avoid the pitfalls, or about co-habitation or pre-marital mediation.
It is wise to do so! That's where couples mediation comes in.
"We know each other so well and love will conquer everything. There's nothing we can't face or fix together."
Does that sound familiar? It's a wonderful sentiment, but real life intervenes. There will be things you didn't know about each other. I promise!
There will be family issues, values clashes, style and temperament differences that simply don't show up in the early days of getting to know one another while being on your best behavior.
Wise couples want to prevent difficulties and disasters that can fracture their relationships. And, that is the reason for Co-Habitation Mediation and Pre-Marital Mediation.
Wise though those may be for people with vast assets, Co-Habitation & Pre-Marital Agreements are insure you have considered as many issues as you can before they rise up and threaten your relationship. These include time management, spending habits, values, family styles, traditions, spiritual paths, conflict management, communication, negotiation and other preferences.
You can see the value of discussing these thoroughly and making agreements.
When difficulties--or emotions--arise, you'll have already thought it through and have a plan you've agreed on. Reduce the surprises! That's wise.
