About CoupleWise

Board of Marriage Researchers and Couples Therapist Advisers

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

“Having interviewed thousands of couples in 47 countries on 6 of the world’s seven continents during our 30+ 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.” -Dr. Charles D Schmitz and Dr. Elizabeth A. Schmitz
