What is TwogetherinTexas ?

Twogether in Texas is dedicated to increasing the well-being of children by providing voluntary marriage and relationship education skills to their parents. Through this website you can find information on how couples can access marital, pre-marital, and relationship enhancement classes. All Texans are able to utilize these services. There are no eligibility requirements. Couples that complete 8 hours of pre-marital education through one of the service providers listed on this website are able to receive $60  off their marriage license fee.

My classes are called Relational Health and they are FREE !! Yes, you read right, they are FREE. There are NO hidden charges whatsoever.

And all you need are yourselves as a couple and the willingness to learn and invest your Saturday together.

These classes qualify engaged couples to a $60, State of Texas, discount off of their marriage licenses.

My classes are held on a Saturday from 8:30am till 5pm.

My classes are finished for 2019 and are being scheduled for 2020. Please return to this page in December of  2019. Thank you.

The State of Texas requires 8 hours of marital skills education to satisfy receiving a completion certificate that is used at any county office where a marriage license can be purchased.

My FREE class, called Relational Health, gives to couples the educational marital skills that satisfy the State of Texas requirements for a marital license discount of $60.

One final note: 

Anyone can attend. You DO NOT have to come for the $60 discount certificate. You DO NOT have to be engaged. You DO NOT have to be married. Any couple in a serious relationship is WELCOME. It just makes terrific sense to learn good relational skills because it can enhance the important relationships in our lives.

Here are some bonus benefits:

Yes, these skills will benefit your primary relationship however, you can take these skills and use them with any relationship: children, family members, friends, church group, and co-workers. And…you’ll have a free lunch provided as well. 

Again, all this is FREE. Sound strange, too good to be true, or that there's a catch of some kind? There's no obligation other than your time and energy for a day. And the reason why it's free is because of our sponsors, businesses in the Austin area,  who believe in committed relationships and support the workshops through their donations.
