This document highlights common factors experienced by immigrant couples that can be beneficial and strenuous to the couple relationship. It also includes specific issues program developers should consider when working with recent, Spanish-speaking immigrant couples residing in the United States. The recommendations in this memo are drawn from discussions at the Supporting Healthy Marriage and Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative joint research meeting held on September 12-13, 2005, in Washington, DC; a research meeting held in conjunction with the Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative National Conference on May 11, 2006, in San Antonio, Texas; and a research meeting held in conjunction with a conference sponsored by the Center for Latino Family Research on September 15-16, 2006, in St. Louis, Missouri. This document is not intended to be a complete discussion of these issues, but rather a summary of the advice and guidance offered by researchers and practitioners from the Hispanic community.
