Questions about married life?
We're here to help you find the answers that work for your relationship.
Do you wonder how to make sure your happily ever after is more fantastic than your wedding day?
Or maybe you simply think...
What is happily ever after, anyway?
Why doesn't he put his cell phone down when I'm talking?
How can we stop fighting over the smallest things?
Why doesn't she believe me when I say, "I'm sorry?"
Why don't we go on dates anymore?
What is the deal with my mother-in-law?
Forever Is For Real
Our 8-hour small group workshops are designed to be fun and practical so that you learn new tools for your relationship. We'll talk about leisure time, stress, conflict, communication, a little about parenting or step-parenting, sex, finances and more.
We provide a casual setting so it feels like you're hanging out with some new friends who just happen to have some of the same marriage questions you do. Following each workshop, you'll have fun homework assignments and a 2-hour private followup session that's tailored to your relationship, so 12 hours all in.
Small investment with a big impact.
We also offer private sessions. Same casual concept and coaching but specifically for the two of you.
It's kind of awesome. We know.
Nope! You'll get actionable info meant to help you connect.
The only grade is "A+."

I'm Shawna and I love being
As a wedding professional, officiant and co-owner of
Away We Go Weddings, I write custom creative wedding ceremonies that go beyond "repeat after me".
It is even more important to me that couples have lasting marriages, and that's why
Husband and I started Very Married.
We provide unique premarital and marriage coaching options for all relationships. I'm a certified Prepare / Enrich facilitator, an approved Gottman Method relationship assessment provider, a teacher and public speaker and I've been interviewed for national publications for marriage and wedding insight.
Before anything else, I am a wife and a puppy mother who likes to spend my free time playing Scrabble with Husband, eating nachos with Husband, singing to our Dogson, baking scones for my family and awaiting the next season release of The Crown.
I've added snaps of a few things I love dearly.
Well, I don't love my picture, but
the rest of the things I'm crazy about.
