OurRelationship — Flexible Online Support for Military Couples

couple hugs after deployment

Many couples have times when their relationship could use some help. But not every couple needs the same kind of help, or in the same way. OurRelationship is a flexible, online, evidence-based tool that gives military couples the choice to work on their own or with a coach to strengthen their relationship. It is tailored to the military community and free for active-duty, Guard and reserve couples.

How OurRelationship works

OurRelationship consists of online activities to solve relationship problems. Couples can choose which issues to focus on, including these common ones:

  • Communication and conflict
  • Emotional distance and love
  • Trust

Couples can complete the online activities together or separately, making it ideal for those separated because of deployment or other reasons. For a quick snapshot of OurRelationship, download this infographic.

Coaching option

Couples who choose the OurRelationship coaching option are more likely to complete the program. Their online activities are reinforced with phone or video calls with a coach. This option:

  • Includes five weekly 20-minute calls with a coach who helps you tailor the online program and activities to meet your needs.
  • Can be completed on your schedule, days, evenings or weekends.
  • Allows participants to select their coach. They can learn about the coaches by browsing the OurRelationship website. Some coaches have a military background.

Self-guided option

Couples who choose the self-guided option complete the online activities without outside support. The self-guided option:

  • Is good for highly motivated couples.
  • Can be done at a couple’s own pace.
  • Encourages structured conversations and includes tasks to complete outside of the reading material and video content.
  • Includes feedback tailored to the couple’s responses.

Both the self-guided and coaching options take four to six weeks to complete. The program requires a lot of reading and access to technology, including internet.
