Twogether in Texas

Dating? Engaged? Married?

Relationship education can strengthen the bond you have with your partner, reduce stress, and help you communicate effectively. Workshops are 8 hours long and are free or low-cost. Participants will learn about communication skills, conflict resolution, and key components of strong relationships. Some couples may choose to seek the services of a counselor or therapist, depending on their situation, but Twogether in Texas workshops can benefit anyone.

Engaged Couples

Engaged couples who complete an 8-hour marriage/relationship workshop can use their certificate of completion to get $60 off their marriage license fee as well as a waiver of the 72-hour waiting period. Certificates are valid for one year from the workshop date and must be presented at the County Clerk’s office before applying for a marriage license. Couples can take a workshop anywhere in Texas. The Parenting Center offers premarital workshops on a regular basis through our Empowering Families Project and these workshops are recognized by Twogether in Texas and allow couples to receive a discount on the marriage license. Classes are offered on Saturdays or Sundays. Click here for details about Empowering Families or call 817-632-5529.
