Military couples face a number of distinctive stressor events, including relocation, deployment, and financial instability. Therefore, premarital education programs that address marriage skills, such as healthy communication, as well as conditions that are unique to military life, are important for healthy military marriages. An online survey was taken by 19 participants involved in military relationships. Respondents who participated in premarital education reported receiving information about general marriage skills, but not the specific factors related to military couples. Implications for intervention and further research are discussed.
