Summary

The Marriage Strengthening Research and Dissemination Center aims to forge a nexus between research on marriage and families in the U.S. and programmatic approaches designed to support healthy relationships and marriage, particularly for those most in need. Drawing from a comprehensive review of existing demographic and evaluation data combined with program evaluation findings, strengths and gaps in research on healthy relationships and marriage, and Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) program implementation and evaluation will be discussed. Opportunities to strengthen HMRE programs through research and evaluation will be addressed.
