New Report

The Power of Relationship Education

Relationship education (RE) is any type of course, program, or brief intervention that seeks to strengthen the couple relationship and help them achieve their goals for a happy and loving partnership (Markman et al., 2022). It also includes relationship literacy education for individuals, including youth and young adults, to help them envision and prepare for healthy romantic relationships. RE is not therapy. It emphasizes education to prevent problems or reduce them when they begin to emerge. RE courses teach concepts such as communication skills, setting realistic expectations, and deepening commitment to and understanding of a partner (Hawkins & Boyd, 2018). RE is available to all types of people in all different kinds of situations — married or unmarried, gay or straight, young or old, stable or struggling.
