SYMBIS (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts) is a very well researched and accurate online assessment for YOUR relationship. Marriage is a blessing from God and should be treated as such. In today's society it is not uncommon to hear such comments as "Are you sure you want to get married?" when a couple announces their engagement. We understand there is not always a favorable reply.
Why INVEST in SYMBIS: When we acquire a driver's license, we must go through some "preparation" FIRST in order to test for that license. Sad to say, when we get married, we honestly do not have to "prepare" one bit. As long as we are the correct age and can afford the license fee, it's a done deal. This should be an alarming fact! For those who actually take a pre-marriage prep course and invest in their future, they become 31% less likely to divorce. Taking the SYMBIS assessment shows you VALUE your relationship and you want to make it the best future possible. You are saying "I am in IT to WIN it!" I want to be pro-active and equipped for this very special relationship. Check SYMBIS in greater detail.
It's your choice. You can walk "blindly" into your marriage or you can walk "educated" into your marriage!
41% of divorced couples say lack of PRE-MARRIAGE PREP contributed to their divorce.1 There is absolutely NO REASON for a couple to "blindly" enter into marriage today. There are so many resources to help couples prepare before they say "I Do." The problem is the CHOICE is up to each couple. We owe it to OUR future and OUR family's future to be the best educated and prepared for this lifetime journey we are about to start. SYMBIS is a fantastic starting spot for a couple to move forward with their relationship!
SYMBIS is YOUR relationship on paper.
Once each party takes the online assessment, a fifteen-page report will be sent to Pitcher Ministries as your SYMBIS facilitator. WE will schedule sessions with you to go over this report. You will learn about virtually every area of your relationship. We will discuss your marriage mindsets. We will see your two personalities and how they come together with great strengths and how they challenge each other. You will see how each of you approach subjects such as communication, conflict, money, and intimacy. Your family, social and spiritual circles will be depicted as how they are blending together. If you have any caution flags, they will show on this assessment as well as "Hot Topics" for conflict. We will be able to examine your roles and expectations as you start this new life. Basically EVERY area of IMPORTANCE will be depicted and discussed through these sessions. Don't you think YOUR relationship is worth this sort of preparation?
Two session options.
We offer two options for your sessions: 1) In-person sessions or 2) Zoom meetings. Working with couples in the wedding planning stage can be a bit challenging for some schedules. To accommodate couples with very hectic schedules or possibly one works out of town, we offer the online meeting option. It is our passion to work with each couple on an individual basis as to their specific need. Our goal is to get you through the SYMBIS process in the most efficient manner possible for both parties.
