Free Marriage Counseling for All

Children raised in two-parent households have better outcomes across almost every dimension. Studies also show that being in a happy marriage contributes to longevity and life satisfaction. However, there is currently very little support out there for people who are looking for assistance in managing their marital relationship.

Because of the huge societal good that comes from keeping married couples who want to stay together in their relationships, marriage counseling for interested couples should be free or heavily subsidized by the government.

Problems to be Solved

Goals

As President I will...

  • Mandate the inclusion of family counseling services in any plan sold through the ACA marketplaces.
  • Subsidize marriage counseling provided by any credentialed provider through the tax code.
