Optimistic or Quixotic? More Data on Marriage and Relationship Education Programs for Lower Income Couples
Johnson, Matthew D.
American Psychologist, v68 n2 p111-112 Feb-Mar 2013
The author is gratified and encouraged that such an esteemed group of relationship scientists as Hawkins et al. (2013, this issue) want to continue the discussion of government-supported marriage and relationship education (MRE) programs for lower income couples by responding to his article (Johnson, May-June 2012). In their comment, they argued that there are data that support the efficacy of MRE programs for disadvantaged couples and that the benefits of these programs outweigh the costs. The author explains his response to both of these points in this article.
