MIDLAND, TX - Guarantee Your Marriage, a new online marital-training program, states that they can keep your love lasting. If not they'll keep your pocketbook full.
For newlyweds Amory and Jordan Skaggs, married life is a new adjustment. But they came prepared for the challenges by taking traditional pre- marital counseling.
"You don't think about combining your finances and stuff, so I think it just allowed us to talk about those things … [such as] your different backgrounds,” said newlywed Amory Skaggs.
"It forces you to hash out stuff maybe that are under the surface…you may not necessarily want to talk about," said newlywed Jordan Skaggs.
The couple agreed unanimously that finances are tough to master. They stated that if they could earn money for getting marriage training online, they’d tie the knot on that deal.
That program is "Guarantee Your Marriage"; which will pay couples who sign up for training.
"If people stay married on their 20th anniversary, we will provide them a ‘Guarantee Your Marriage’ reward of $25,000," said Guarantee Your Marriage Spokesperson Jaques Bazinet.
For about $30 a month, couples go through online modules that help open the lines of communication. If the marriage doesn’t work out, there's an incentive in that as well.
"We do offer a warranty for our product. So if you've been married for 10 years and for some reason our product fails and you end up getting a divorce … we will provide a $10,000 warranty for the failure of our product, " stated Bazinet.
The Guarantee Your Marriage program takes less than an hour a month. Officials with the program stated that those who take the training are more than likely to stay married.
There are three different levels of membership, each pays out a different amount after 20 years of marriage. If you sign up for the standard counseling, they offer $25,000. For the gold plan, it’s a $62,500. The platinum level pays $125,000.
