Directory Programs

We can all learn how to have successful relationships, and happy families. You won't find a course called "Smart Marriages®" – but ALL the courses listed in this directory will help you become smarter about your marriage or relationship. What is it like to attend a class? Watch this 2 min video. It speaks to the overall experience - all the courses teach the basic marriage skills in one format or another.

The programs listed work for ANY couple at ANY stage – dating, engaged, newlywed, cohabiting, remarried, or on the brink of divorce. Take a class and dramatically improve your odds of success. And, it turns out, an old dog can learn new tricks – you can fall back in love even when your love is on the rocks.

• However, a few courses are specialized: targeted to premarital preparation, stepfamilies, empty nesters, new parents, sexual issues, infidelity recovery, Spanish speaking, African Americans, Christians, singles, etc. See the special interest categories below.

• If you don't find a class near you, click on Headquarters offices - they provide classes across the country. Or, click Community Marriage initiatives.

• There are a variety of programs in both faith-based and secular (non-religious) formats.

• If you'd like to become a marriage, relationship or family instructor/educator search the Training Programs section or the Teach Out of the Box or Free Online sections. For requirements and info.

• If you can't make it to a class, try the Learn-at-a-Distance options - DVD home-study, phone-coaching, etc for learning the skills in your own living room OR to become an instructor and teach the classes
in your community or congregation.
