Programs have a Significant Impact using Marriage Mentors with Couples

The PREPARE-ENRICH program was offered by marriage mentors to 1,070 low income couples over a four year period, 62% were married and 38% were premarital couples.

The mentors worked one hour per week for 8 weeks with the couples. At pre-test, 20% of the couples were Vitalised (most happy), 19% were Conventional, 31% were Conflicted and 25% were Devitalised (most unhappy). At post-test, the number of Devitalised dropped from 25% to 5%, Conflicted dropped from 31% to 15%, and Vitalised increased from 20% to 47%.

In summary, the Program had a very significant impact in improving the couples’ relationship

PREPARE/ENRICH has several resources to help you unpack and mine the assessment results. For more details on this exercise, refer to the Marriage Mentor Manual.
