The programs we offer are online, self-help programs – they’re not therapy. However, in some ways, our program is better than therapy – you can do it in your own time from wherever you have an Internet connection. And our results show that they’re just as effective (or nearly as effective, depending on the study) as in-person marriage counseling.
You can schedule calls with your coach during the day, evening, or even weekends. In those calls, your coach will help you apply the skills and lessons you learned in the online activities to your relationship. You can contact your coach via Zoom or phone.
You can complete the program at your own pace, but most of our couples complete it in one to two months. If you’re working with a coach, you’ll have access to that coach for up to two months.

Eligible couples can receive the program for free through a grant from the Administration for Children and Families (and earn up to $450 in gift cards). Service members may also be eligible to receive the OurRelationship program for free through a contract with Military OneSource. Additionally, several other organizations provide free access to their covered employees or beneficiaries.
If you are not eligible for free services, you can complete one of the couples programs with a coach for a one-time fee of $199 or any of our programs (including the individual version) without a coach for a one-time fee of $79. Your account will be good for 6 months of access to the program.
