Pre-marriage counselling in Melbourne assists couples to have a smoother transition into the next phase of life together. If issues remain unresolved by the time they get married, couples can become stuck and not be able to deal with other issues that arise along the way. It is important couples can communicate and successfully negotiate on important matters, such as raising of children.

John Gottman studied why married couples end in divorce. A prediction for divorce is when couples raise issues in a harsh way ( being negative, accusatory) which causes the conversation to end badly. A negative comment will evoke a defensive reaction in the other, creating a defensive pattern of interaction. Gottman described these negative interactions, that cause marriage failure, as the Four Horseman of Apocalypse; which include criticism; contempt; defensive and stonewalling. Pre-marriage couples counselling can defuse defensive reactions, so couples can become unstuck from negative patterns of interaction and foster a deeper understanding for each other.
