When couples get engaged, there is so much excitement and love surrounding this special time. It’s finally time to plan that one special day many of us dreamed about for so long. It truly is a remarkable thing to find another person in this crazy world, not only willing, but excited to spend the rest of his or her life with you! How amazing! In addition to all the fun trends in wedding planning these days, I am seeing another trend emerge….pre-marital counseling! I am so encouraged that couples are starting to work on their future marriage in addition to planning their wedding.
It is well known that religious institutions often require some form of pre-marital counseling if they are to perform a marriage service. But what if you are non-religious, or prefer science based counseling? Enter Gretchen and The Happy Couple in Denver.

There are many things I love about this company, the first being they offer science based counseling to couples looking to strengthen their relationship and develop deeper intimacy. Gretchen (the company’s developer) has a deep passion for couples counseling. In her words,
“I am a firm believer in the importance of premarital relationship services– research consistently demonstrates the benefits of premarital relationship education in terms of reducing divorce rates and improving marital satisfaction over the long term. However, as I looked around at what was out there for couples, I felt that there weren’t enough options available outside of religious organizations, and not enough options that utilize scientifically-based approaches to relationship education.”
