Utilizing SYMBIS for Premarital Counseling

Before embarking on the journey of marriage, couples often seek guidance to strengthen their bond and lay a solid foundation for a lifetime of love and companionship. Premarital counseling is a valuable resource that offers couples insights, tools, and strategies to navigate the complexities of married life. One such tool gaining popularity is the SYMBIS assessment—Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts. Let’s delve into how utilizing SYMBIS for premarital counseling can benefit couples in profound ways.

Understanding SYMBIS

SYMBIS is more than just an assessment; it’s a comprehensive resource developed by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, renowned marriage experts. This tool is designed to assess various aspects of a couple’s relationship, including communication styles, conflict resolution strategies, financial management, personality dynamics, and more. By analyzing the results, couples gain valuable insights into their strengths and areas for growth.

Benefits of Utilizing SYMBIS

1. Enhanced Communication:
Effective communication is the cornerstone of a healthy marriage. SYMBIS helps couples understand each other’s communication styles, preferences, and potential areas of conflict. By gaining insights into how to effectively communicate with each other, couples can prevent misunderstandings and cultivate deeper connections.

2. Conflict Resolution Skills:
Every relationship encounters conflicts, but it’s how couples navigate these conflicts that truly matters. SYMBIS identifies potential areas of conflict based on personality differences and provides strategies for resolving disputes constructively. Couples learn to approach disagreements with empathy, understanding, and a willingness to compromise.

3. Financial Compatibility:
Money matters can be a significant source of tension in relationships. SYMBIS assesses couples’ financial beliefs, habits, and attitudes, allowing them to understand each other’s perspectives on money management. With this knowledge, couples can develop a shared financial plan that aligns with their values and goals, fostering financial harmony in their marriage.

4. Strengths-Based Approach:
SYMBIS focuses not only on identifying areas for improvement but also on recognizing and celebrating couples’ strengths. By highlighting their unique strengths and compatibility, SYMBIS empowers couples to leverage these qualities to nurture a resilient and thriving relationship.

5. Preparation for Marriage Challenges:
Marriage is a journey filled with ups and downs, and preparation is key to navigating its challenges successfully. SYMBIS equips couples with the tools, insights, and resources they need to anticipate potential obstacles and proactively address them. By building a strong foundation during premarital counseling, couples are better prepared to weather the storms that may arise in their marriage.


Utilizing SYMBIS for premarital counseling offers couples a valuable opportunity to deepen their understanding of each other, strengthen their bond, and lay the groundwork for a fulfilling and enduring marriage. By addressing key areas such as communication, conflict resolution, financial management, and more, couples can embark on their marital journey with confidence and resilience.
