From our work teaching Relationship and Marriage Education (RME) programs to many thousands of Californians… across all ages and ethnicities, all income and educational levels, through many different languages and a wide variety of curricula, as well as from conducting the largest and most comprehensive cross-site, cross-program research on Relationship and Marriage Education programs, we know that RME works.

From this unparalleled experience and the best practices we have innovated throughout this work, we have developed a portfolio of powerful resources and an experienced team of professionals with the ability to help other organizations, communities and countries implement RME programs. 

From this capacity and our vision of bringing RME to the four corners of the world, Healthy Relationships International was born.
