Relationship and marriage education has been primarily developed for and offered to middle-class committed couples. Increasing government funding of these programs raises questions about the extent to which these curricula and programs need to be adapted for low-income populations. We review the limited body of relevant research and program experience to identify the challenges and guiding principles that need to be addressed when offering these programs to more diverse populations.
