Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts (SYMBIS)
When working with engaged (or pre-engaged) couples, I use a research based assessment called Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts (SYMBIS). This assessment addresses over 20 topics such as personality, maturity, finances, in-laws, sex, and who is going to take out the trash. Each partner will answer questions independently and you will receive a combined report with details on each subject. If either/both of you are entering a second (or subsequent) marriage, an extra section will be included on issues specific to remarriage. The assessment itself takes approximately 35 minutes to complete.
Because of all the great information this assessment provides, it does take approximately five hours to go over the entire report together. Although many couples schedule these as five separate one-hour sessions, we can do fewer but longer sessions if needed.
Total cost: $475
Marriage was never designed to make an individual happy. An individual needs to work on making their marriage happy.
