Research Don’t Lie – Marriage Education Works!

MML Fresno Jan 2008Hitched Magazine, an online site that “entertains, educates and inspires marriages,” posted a new article, New Research Shows Marriage Education Works” (by Julie Sallee Partin).  Here’s an excerpt of the article.

“A study published in early 2009 titled, “Investigating the Effects of Marriage and Relationship Education on Couples’ Communication Skills: A Meta-Analytic Study” by the American Psychological Association, a scientific and professional organization that represents psychologists, confirms the importance of government’s roll in supporting marriage and relationship-based education. Looking at more than 100 published and unpublished studies dating back to 1975, the study found a significant positive effect on a couple’s communication skills and relationship quality when they attended marriage education courses.

According to the compiled research, “The goal of marriage and relationship education is to help couples form and sustain healthy, stable marriages and relationships, which is done by strengthening a couple’s relationship skills.” The study also showed strong favor for couples that attended moderate-dosage programs—naturally having a higher level of effectiveness and showing better success rates than those of couples who attended less frequently.”
