Marriage & Relationship Education

Marital & Relationship Education Programs Help Keep Couples Together

Studies on the effectiveness of Prep find that couples that have participated in PREP are less likely to get divorced and have significantly higher levels of marital satisfaction. One long-term study on PREP found that couples who took the program before marriage had less negative interaction, more positive interaction, lower rates of relationship aggression, lower combined rates of breakup or divorce and higher levels of relationship satisfaction up to five years following the training.

In the United States, couples marrying for the first time have approximately a fifty percent chance of divorcing. Certified relationship educators are helping couples’ “I do” last a lifetime through application of scientifically tested relationship education programs.
