The six couples featured in the audience during CoupleTalk are real life couples, ranging from engaged to married for many years; from newlyweds to new parents-to-be.
Every couple is just like you! Living and loving in various stages of life, dealing with real life issues such as unemployment, cultural differences, and stresses of managing work and home life.
Each couple went through the full CoupleTalk program and agreed to share their experiences with the exercises and how CoupleTalk affected their relationship. Below are links to watch the pre- and post-program interviews with each CoupleTalk Video Couple.
