Research-based Marriage Guidance That Actually Works

Welcome! OnlyYouForever is the home of The Marriage Podcast for Smart People, co-hosted by Verlynda and myself. This site came about from a desire to help marriages; to make sure you never get to that point of no return, and to help you find or renew that spark of love. We share advice that is practical and understandable while speaking from a Christian worldview. Every episode contains research-backed and Bible-based wisdom that will help YOU create a thriving, passionate marriage!

What Our Listeners Are Saying


Love Your Podcast!

You certainly make it easy to understand the concepts you talk about. You both have helped my wife and I in relating to each other, in a much more positive, problem solving way and also with our teenager.
Thanks, Mike

New Tricks

OYF is teaching this old dog some new tricks! I have been married and in ministry for 30 years and absolutely love the fresh approach that Caleb and Verlynda bring to the journey of marriage. I am in overnight truck driver and have been binge listening since I discovered the podcast a few weeks ago. I just finished the episode on cell phone addiction – ouch! I share episodes with my sons in law to encourage and challenge them as well. Thank you for the intellectual challenge with a lighthearted approach.

The best marriage podcast out there!!!

Caleb and Verlynda are the best! Lots of sound research based advice. So much great content. My husband and I have listened to so many of your podcasts, over and over. We have great discussions and they have been instrumental in helping us in our marriage to grow closer to each other. They have helped us to understand ourselves and each other better than we ever have. 42 years married and were now in our best season of life ever! Thank you for your help! Love you guys!

You are angels to us. 🙂

Late 2016 to late 2017, our marriage was a hell. On our third year of our marriage, all our inner mess and baggages surfaced to the point that we have to separate to two countries. Your podcast has been one of my solace during the agonizing months. I binged! I would make my husband listen to your podcast last year and at first he would shut down but slowly he began to really listen. Your straight to the point attention to the problem and solution has helped us communicate better, understand each other better and love each other again better. This beginning of the year is our breakthru and please know that you helped saved our marriage. Your voices are almost our everyday radio station with Rick Warren lol... And we laugh at your intro all the time! Now, with all the learning that I have learned from you, I have been using it to help other couples that are in distressed in their marriage or relationships. I love that it's not christianese but with sound research backed up that's why it get thru my husbands and mines hard hearts last year. Again, thank you! We are moving to BC this summer and can’t wait for our adventure there! And I might get Psychology to head thru counselling maybe in Trinity Western U because of you two! God bless you and your family! Mabuhay!

Best demonstration of marriage relationships

I caught my husband listening to this advice one night and asked to listen in too. Wow, what a lovely demonstration of communication between spouses discussing all those important issues that come up and are so hard to talk about and sort out. Their topics cover everything that causes our happiness in marriage to come unstuck. I have passed this on to many of my friends and family. Lets hope they have a listen - we are finding it is helping us as well as helping us to help others. 10 points you two - thanks for being so transparent and letting us hear how it's done.

Great information, well presented

Very insightful episodes! Great information packaged in a logical way with evidence from studies to back up conclusions.

I recently enjoyed binge listening to a lot of the episodes from the archives and particularly enjoyed the series on finances and debt management. Rather than being inflexible and opposed to debt, as is the stance of many personal finance gurus, Caleb made comments highlighting that debt tolerance can often be different from one person to the next. In the context of married couples, navigating these differences is an important process to maintaining strength in a marriage when facing financial strain, which is one of the number one drivers of divorce.

This podcast is a gift to society. Marriages are so important to family life, and families are important in society.

I’ve been pleased to recommend this podcast to many people since I started listening. I always finish an episode with lots to think about. Thank you both for this work you’re doing!

Thank You!

Great podcast! I was looking for a marriage podcast and find the research very informative and interesting. Thanks for all the information! I already have used some of your tips and can tell they are making a difference!

I just can’t get enough!

Yes, that’s a chorus line from an 80s pop song. And it also may sound like the title of an episode addressing some type of addiction, but in the sense that I mean- well... maybe it actually is my own case of addiction... I might just be addicted to your podcast! So, can you do an episode on that issue? 😉 But seriously, I do feel like there aren’t enough hours in my day to be able to listen to all of the past episodes, while going back to re-listen and take notes on the countless episodes that seem written for me (or my spouse, or both of us).

I recently became a patron, so I now face another sense of overwhelming goodness- in the wealth of bonus material. I’m provided with so many helpful resources, like a filing cabinet overflowing with essential documents and evidence critical to solving a cold-case mystery (that’s the way my struggling marriage can often seem). Just when I’m ready to throw in the towel on persevering and putting in the hours to “crack the code”, another episode with key insights emerges from the filling cabinet.

Your efforts are clearly led and blessed by God. No doubt, He has used you, and continues to use you to help restore weak and, or failing marriages, as well as to positively impact the lives of individuals struggling with doubt and despair. I’m sure there are other wives like me (or perhaps husbands, too) who listen alone, in hopes that God will help us persevere in endlessly laboring for our marriage (which at times, may mean that we’re carrying this very heavy load uphill all alone).

Still, with God’s faithfulness, His loving right hand holding mine, and the tools that you provide through your podcast “lessons” and the bonus materials, I believe my marriage has a fighting chance. If I can get out of the way and let God lead me (submit to Him as He works on my character through this guidance), He can and will restore to me the joy of my marriage and renew it as one that brings Him glory. This is the hope that your podcast (and God’s Word) gives me!

Thank you both! Lifting up prayers of gratitude for your commitment to your mission!
