By: Van Epp, John


Becoming Better Together is based on the evidence-based Couple LINKS program that has been taught to more than half a million marriages worldwide in churches, community coalitions, prisons, universities, social agencies, and in every branch of the military. Learning and following the RAM plan has increased couples’ communication, closeness, and satisfaction with their relationship and sex life, as well as lowered the divorce rate over a ten-year period in communities where the LINKS program was taught. Becoming Better Together is a proven method for sustaining closeness in your marriage, surfacing your deficits, and intentionally strengthening the five major bonds of your love.
