Stronger Marriage

About Relationship Education Classes

The Utah Marriage Commission recommends training for couples and
individuals who would like to improve their relationships.
 

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

Singles, engaged, newlywed or experienced couples will benefit. Discussion,
led by trained leaders, will focus on factors that contribute to healthy relationships
and successful marriages.

 

IS MARRIAGE EDUCATION FOR COUPLES IN TROUBLE??

No. Marriage Education is not therapy, but educational classes focus on insights into
more loving and growth-filled relationships.  Research shows that while therapy can be
extremely helpful in certain situations, much of what goes wrong in loving relationships
has more to do with never having learned the skills and principles associated with
successful relationships.

 

DOES RELATIONSHIP SKILLS EDUCATION REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes! According to a systematic review of the impact of Marriage and Relationship
Programs, programs focusing on improving communication skills and relationship
satisfaction produce significant improvements in both areas. (The Urban Institute,
February 2005)
