Richer Marriage Program Overview

Before starting this program, we recommend both of you complete an online survey from Life Innovations. After filling out the survey, you both will receive a customized Couple Checkup report on ten areas of your married life.

There will be a few times throughout Richer Marriage where we will refer to the Couple Checkup reports.

The couple check-up report is not required, and you can certainly get through Richer Marriage without it, just be aware if you do not have the report, there will be several brief activities that you won’t be able to complete.
