Marriage + Divorce
Similar to civilian life, marriage and divorce are two major life-changing events for service members and their families.
Engaged couples, newlyweds, and those celebrating many years of marriage can all benefit from marriage enrichment programs. Marriage enrichment programs are available through the Services, as well as local communities. Some programs are tailored to couples in crisis, while others offer general tips for effective communication, managing money, and renewing your marriage commitment. Take some time to research programs and find a good match for you and your spouse or spouse-to-be.
Each Service offers marriage enrichment programs, generally sponsored by the installation chaplain. Click here for more information on Service and community resources.
