Course Overview

The Marriage Course

Where once the family was the stable foundation upon which all else was built, today its shattered remnants are the source of much of what troubles society. And while marriages still outnumber divorces, the gap is rapidly closing. Marriage is well on the way to becoming a failed institution.

L. Ron Hubbard wrote extensively on interpersonal relationships and much of it is applicable to this most personal of relationships. In this course and corresponding booklet, you will discover methods to make a marriage work, why many marriages fail, how to discover if partners are well suited to each other, and how to save a failing marriage.

While our magazines are filled with the advice of “pop” psychologists, the trend has only worsened. Here are real solutions—workable solutions—that can be applied to improve any intimate relationship.

Success Stories

“The Marriage Course was very instrumental in helping my husband and I understand each other, by learning to respect each other, show honesty and trust, and to speak up when annoyed and not harbor anger.

“We were on the verge of separating, thinking there was no way to repair the damage. One of the things we lack in the African tradition is communication, as the husband is always in charge and right in all aspects. In our culture, the men are dominant, the women are shy to express their feelings, and in most cases this results in divorces. We have no marriage counselors to repair marriages.

“Thanks to the Church of Scientology very much. Having read this booklet, I have come to learn and understand that marriage is the foundation of a family unit.” – J.F.

“When I was facing challenges in my marriage, I thought I was going to divorce until I discovered the Volunteer Ministers on the internet. My life was very miserable, and I never had any happy moments with my husband.

“In doing the Marriage Course I discovered myself once more and I have my strength renewed. I found myself being able to talk to people who have marriage problems and being a counselor by providing them with information (the booklets). The moment I began sharing the information I found myself wanting to be married not divorced and I realized that problems can be solved and people can start a new life after going through horrible times if they are given the necessary information to solve their differences.

“Being married is an honor and by communicating you will have the best marriage ever. I was one of the bad communicators but thanks to the Volunteer Ministers for the encouraging practicals, if you follow them you will discover yourself once more.

There is nothing impossible in a marriage as long as you have the Volunteer Ministers information. I am a new and changed person and my other friends who had the same problems are beginning to appreciate their marriages too. – J.M.
