Several studies have suggested that couples who participate in pre-marital counseling and therapy have a lower than average divorce rate.  As a matter of fact, a 2006 study published by Stanley, Amato and Markham from the University of Denver found that premarital counseling and therapy reduced the rate of divorce by thirty percent.  This is an important conclusion, as nearly fifty percent of couples end up divorcing and divorce rates for subsequent marriages have been found to be even higher.
