Marriage is one of the stepping foundations of the civil, organized life. It is important to realize that the society, by marriage, makes the husband and wife liable for maintaining a responsibility together to form a family. I am going to write my essay related to the importance of the marital education for the couples, who are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. Families and friends merely are not enough to equip a newlywed couple for the challenges of the coming life. The first challenge is the ability to cope with the life changes that come as a part of the marriage. Marriage means formation of new bonds and relationships. For forming new bonds, the newlyweds require a lot of harmony and understanding. The connection between the two families also effects the newlyweds. Thus, it is required by the family and friends of the newlyweds to allow them to have space for the time, understanding, learning and growing together. The next important milestone in the marriage is the family planning. For this, a couple needs to consult a family counselor or a health care practitioner. Thus by taking preventive measures, the family counseling will allow the family to be more healthful. The next important step that a newlywed couple needs to relate to is the importance of learning of how to be a better parent. It is missing in the entire educational system and learning process of a person, and it cannot be learned in a few days. Child psychology, pedagogical approaches and knowing about how to relate to the newly borns takes time and patience. Hence it is important for a couple to find the advice and counsel of an experienced couple, health care advisor or any planning service related to parenthood through which a newlywed couple could learn about the parenting care, the upbringing methods and other techniques to help the children flourish.
