Healthy Relationships

We help youth and adults develop healthy couple relationships.

The prosperity of families and communities can be strongly influenced by the health and stability of marriages. Furthermore, the welfare of Georgia’s children can be greatly enhanced when their parents develop healthy relationship skills that result in healthy and stable families.

UGA Cooperative Extension is collaborating with community and state partners to offer programs and resources to help individuals and couples develop the skills needed to form and sustain healthy relationships.

The skills needed to develop and maintain a healthy and stable marriage can be learned!

The wedding is just one day, but the marriage is expected to last a lifetime. So why do so many couples put more time into planning their wedding than they do preparing for their marriage?
