Dating? Engaged? Married?
Relationship education can strengthen the bond you have with your partner, reduce stress, and help you communicate effectively. The Parenting Center provides a program for couples with kids, which qualifies you for the Twogether in Texas discount on your marriage license. Participants will learn about communication skills, conflict resolution, and key components of strong relationships.
Engaged couples who complete an approved 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 workshops to couples with kids on a regular basis through our Empowering Families Project and these workshops are recognized by Twogether in Texas. Workshops are 8 weeks long, and are usually held in the evenings. They are offered in English and Spanish. Click here for details about Empowering Families or call 817-632-5529.
