Free Marriage Counseling

If you’ve been thinking about marriage, you’ve probably been thinking about more than just picking a church and the perfect floral arrangements. You’ve considered the amount of commitment and sacrifice a good marriage takes.

The Oklahoma Marriage Initiative (OMI) wants to help you and your spouse get the most out of your marriage. OMI has created several helpful programs to prepare couples for the challenges of Marriage.

PREP curriculum
The Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP®) is designed to enrich marital or future marital relationships by helping couples understand how to overcome challenges in their relationships. "Forever. For Real" marriage workshops are based on the PREP® curriculum. The workshop and materials are provided for free to attendees!

Within a "Forever. For Real." event, each couple is guided through the course by one of 2,600 professionals trained in Oklahoma to deliver marriage education workshops throughout the state. The workshop will help you learn skills to strengthen your relationship, and demonstrates how to maintain a healthy relationship for a lifetime.

"Forever. For Real."
"Forever. For Real." is OMI’s series of community events that typically visits more than 10 communities throughout the state. With workshops both open to the public and focused on the needs of sub-groups (engaged couples, stepfamilies, Spanish speaking couples, etc.), we can address almost any situation.

As an incentive, all couples who attend either a PREP® workshop or an "Forever. For Real." event will obtain a certificate and be eligible for a marriage license fee of only $5 instead of the regular charge of $50.

The Oklahoma Marriage Initiative publishes fact sheets that discusses common questions about marriage that many beginning couples have.
