The Marriage Podcast for Smart People
Helping couples build a marriage they’ll love today and treasure for a lifetime
Unfortunately, marriage does not come with an instruction manual. High expectations often lead to disappointment and communication breakdowns.
Did you know communication is the No. 1 challenge married couples face? It’s easy to feel like you’re the only couple struggling with your marriage, and not know where to turn for help. Counseling can be expensive and divorce is very costly. But those aren’t your only option.
The Marriage Podcast for Smart People is designed to help busy couples like yourselves move away from conflict and unhappiness to build a marriage you’ll love today and treasure for a lifetime.
Co-hosts Caleb and Verlynda Simonyi-Gindele understand your pain and frustration. It’s their mission to help save as many marriages as possible. In every episode, they examine secular research and integrate it with a Christian worldview to share actionable steps every couple can take to strengthen their marriage.
Renew your marriage, grow as a couple, and build a thriving future together.

This a great podcast with actionable tips to help you “keep that loving feeling”. And they are a fun couple with light hearted banter.
I can not begin to express how informative all this was for myself . Thank you again for everything you do !!! I am hoping that my husband will be willing to listen to your podcast soon!
Sensitive, precise and encouraging
I enjoy how specific the episodes are—this has helped me to think more carefully about the different challenges a marriage faces, rather than feeling overwhelmed by a general discouragement. Both hosts are very skilled communicators who are sensitive and helpfully professional.
Great podcast for married couples
Best podcast for married couples trying to improve their marriage. I’ve found episodes that address a wide variety of issues, this is my favorite podcast on marriage I’ve found.
Review from an anonymous listener on an amazing podcast
Caleb and Verlynda, The practical advice you give makes working these concepts into marriage very natural. Your podcast is a greater reminder that marriage takes work, but that it is worth the effort. Thank you for helping listeners keep perspective through potentially challenging times. You are inspiring.
We love this podcast!
My husband and I have listened to this podcast for a few months now and we absolutely love it! This was crucial for our marriage. We were at a point of separation a couple of months ago and have 3 young children. You were a part of saving our marriage!!! THANK YOU! We aren't even religious but the advice is so well done and the combo of the pair of them, works so well together! Great sound advice and now we have become happy patrons.
Keep doing what you're doing! We love you from Erie, PA!
Hi there Caleb and Verlynda, thank you for an awesome podcast series. My wife and I listen to you guys daily and love the down to earth approach to common challenges facing modern day couples. You have helped us grow our marriage and helped open the lines of communication between us. God bless and warmest regards from Lyndon and Chantal
Change your life and feel hope again
After listening to episode 102 about in laws, I realized my need to include more grace in my relationship. I was recently diagnosed with Bipolar 2 disorder and it's caused quite a bit of turmoil in our marriage of four years and two kids. As the oldest children in each of our family's it's already been difficult, but the recent trials have only added. Every single episode of this podcast is gold. Go the Amazon.com way and "subscribe and save" your marriage too.
Binge listening Great information!
Found this looking for marriage podcasts and was elated to find out it was Christian based and went back and started to listen from podcast 1 and am in the sixties. Thank you. I love the interviews, information, but especially Caleb and Verlinda's honesty that they aren't perfect and are still working on the issues they are teaching us.

Meet the Hosts: Caleb and Verlynda
Caleb and Verlynda Simonyi-Gindele live in rural Saskatchewan, Canada, (about 10 miles from the U.S. border and the state of North Dakota) with their three daughters and their family dog. They’ve been married since 1999.
Caleb is a registered Clinical Counsellor (#4323) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, a seasoned public speaker, and professional marriage therapist who serves as the Clinical Director of OnlyYouForever’s online counselling agency.
Verlynda co-hosts the podcast with Caleb and is involved in the behind-the-scenes operations of OnlyYouForever. She is also the Travel Coordinator for The Marriage Cruise for Christian Couples, a seven-night Carribbean cruise that gives couples a chance to escape from the daily grind and focus on renewing their relationship.
Through their weekly podcast, Caleb and Verlynda empower couples around the world by giving them research-based tools and skills to help improve their marriage, through the lens of a Christian worldview.
Like any married couple, Caleb and Verlynda still have moments of frustration, anger, and offense. But on the podcast, you’ll hear them being real, sharing authentic laughs (and even the occasional squabble) with their listeners.
They don’t always agree, but have learned how to respect each other’s differences, find real, lasting joy in their marriage, and hope to help many more marriages come to the same place of intimacy and joy.
