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.

Absolute Best Marriage Podcast Ever!!
Absolutely my favorite podcast! I feel as if I’ve outgrown other marriage podcasts as in I think my views on marriage and sexuality are often healthier than the hosts. But this one is tried and true! They both have great laughs and I love the way they tease each other while tackling all the real issues in marriages. The messages and research are great! Such healthy views on marriage and sexuality! Thank you Caleb and Verlynda! Cannot thank you enough for putting these healthier perspectives out there. You’ve helped me through some dark times in my marriage and now that I’m in the light, you continue to be a huge blessing and a breath of fresh air to listen to every week!
If you’re looking for a Christian marriage podcast, this is it!
I just can’t say enough about how much I adore this podcast! Caleb and Verlynda bring such compassionate insight to marriage while providing incredibly valuable research-based information. Love is patient, love is kind; love never gives up and is always hopeful - if you’re looking for advice from a friend who truly understands and embodies this truth and will run all the advice they give you through this filter, OYF is it. This is hands-down the best Christian marriage podcast I have been able to find — Caleb and Verlynda, you truly are a blessing to many more people than you know!
Thank you for some great tips for helping us have a healthy marriage. It’s been so helpful!
Loving this podcast
Found this scrolling on iTunes for a good listen.
Been binge-listening to these podcasts everyday when I pick my kids up from school.
I write down little notes at the end and share with my husband what I felt was valuable. I can honestly say, I feel a change in the way we BOTH view our marriage. Thanks so much! Been recommending to my friends. Can’t wait for the next podcast!
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.
Thank you for finding a way to make this podcast happen. I know it is a financial sacrifice. I have greatly benefited from the sound, research-based advice. Unfortunately, I’m part of the fifty-percent of people whose marriages fail. Your podcast has exposed areas in my life that need to be changed and improved. Thank you for holding up a godly standard and living it out in front of us. You have a loyal listener for life.
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.
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.
Excellent Content with Cute Accents
I am a School Counselor and absolutely all things psychology! This is an excellent podcast! Caleb and Verlynda are such a fun team and they both bring insight and humor to all of the topics covered. I love the resources that go along with the podcasts so that my husband and I can have concrete strategies to work on! I also have a soft spot for Canadian accents as much of my family is from Nova Scotia:) Keep up the great work!
Keeps on giving
Age 57 and working on 2nd marriage... Great info that only applies to my situations randomly, but i love to listen just to hear people with good communication skills talk about anything. Kind of like if you have a good voice, you could make singing the phone book sound good!

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.
