Family & Children’s Services believes that great relationships can be learned and enhanced.  Because of that belief, we have offered an evidence-based, interactive healthy relationship course called Forever. For Real. since 2000.  During those 13 years, Family & Children’s Services has served over 2,000 couples in the Tulsa metro area.  The six week course teaches participants how to manage conflict, maintain fun and friendship, tap into the power of couple identity, and communicate effectively. 

Helpful workbooks include activities for the couples, some of which are completed in the classroom and others at home.  Activities include personality tests to determine communication styles and conflict management techniques.  Upon course completion couples will have a solid understanding of their weak spots, how to heal them and how to enhance the strong aspects of their relationship.  

An OK marriage license normally costs $50, but complete Forever. For Real. and the cost drops to just $5. Talk about an investment that pays off! Here is some feedback from participants;


“This class saved our relationship.  If not for what we learned, we would have gotten a divorce.”

“This class taught us not to focus so much on our differences, but instead to tap into what works for us. “

“We were separated when we started this class.  We decided to come as the last option before divorcing.  It worked.  We haven’t ever had this level of understating of each other in our whole relationship.”


Forever. For Real. welcomes couples from all walks of life, from those who have just gotten engaged to those who have been married for years.   Join us for our next class, beginning March 6th.  The class meets Thursday evenings from 6-8pm at 650 S. Peoria.  Call 560-1114 to register or click here for additional information.
