Welcome to the New MAREAA Website. Throughout these pages you will find a range of information for educators who work in the Marriage and Relationship Education space, along with a list of Professional Development opportunities. The site is also a place for couples who want to be connected to a service which MAREAA offers. This could be a relationship or pre-marriage education course, a program about bringing your first baby home or a marriage enrichment session. Feel free to browse the site and contact us if you have any further questions.
Building Strong Relationships and Better Marriages
Research overwhelmingly points to the physical, psychological, emotional, social and financial benefits of stable, loving relationships for men, women and children (and our society in general) (DeRose et al 2017; Waite & Gallagher 2000; Lebow et al 2012; McLanahan et al 2013; McLean, D.C., 2017).
Knowing these benefits, MAREAA believes and strongly advocates for the development and maintenance of healthy, committed, nurturing relationships in all their diversity.
MAREAA’s values and ideals support respect, the dignity of all individuals, inclusion, belonging and equality for couples irrespective of age, sexual orientation, cultural or religious background.
