Over 40% of married couples will divorce, and 31% of married people report being unhappy in their marriages. There is a better way. Couples can learn how to talk without fighting, keep friendship and fun alive, and beat the odds of relationship difficulties.
Relationship researchers (including the team at PREP) have developed in-person interventions that can prevent problems, improve relationship health, and cut the risk of divorce. The only problem is that many people don't have an easy way to learn the skills and strategies of PREP that are most often taught in workshops or counseling.
That's why we've developed ePREP.
ePREP is an online program brought to you by PREP, the gold standard for strengthening relationships. It can be completed in the comfort of your own home, and you can start today.

ePREP is part of the PREP approach:
The PREP approach is based on over 30 years of research in the field of relationship health and success. Much of the research on PREP has been conducted at the University of Denver's Center for Marital and Family Studies. The co-directors for this nationally recognized research center are Dr. Howard Markman Ph.D. and Dr. Scott M. Stanley Ph.D. Markman and Stanley are founders of PREP, and, along with various colleagues and the team at PREP, Inc., have been involved in developing and refining marriage and relationship education materials for several decades.
The PREP approach has been delivered and evaluated globally:
As of June 2013, an estimated 1,000 sites have implemented the intervention, including military bases, prisons, universities, and religious organizations. Twelve sites have been evaluated for outcomes, with about 2,000 couples participating in those evaluations. Evaluations have been conducted with the U.S. Army and in Australian and German implementation sites. Approximately 300,000 individuals have participated in PREP or adaptations of PREP.
