Board of Marriage Researchers and Couples Therapist Advisors

CoupleWise boasts a list of the most impressive professional counselors, therapists, and couples researchers as its advisors. As we grow that become even more integral to our development as a premium-quality service.

Having interviewed thousands of couples in 55 countries on all of the world’s 7 continents during our 37 years of research on successful marriage, we can say that CoupleWise is the first use of the internet we’ve seen that shows real promise for helping vast numbers of couples from the privacy of their own home. This is especially significant for couples who cannot afford or are otherwise unwilling to see a therapist..
