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.

Great Christian Marriage Podcast
Thank you for your ministry. You've hit on a few things that I've struggled with. Glad I ran across you on here! May continue to bless your ministry! 🙂
Research based and heartfelt!
This podcast is one of several I consider as a part of my marriage mastermind group! Caleb brings the research, breaks it into easily digestible bites and Verlynda brings real life to discussions about marriage! I love the playful banter between them and always find something actionable with each episode. Thank you both for what you are doing!! I'll be joining you as a patron soon!
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!
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.
Thank you for some great tips for helping us have a healthy marriage. It’s been so helpful!
Solid Marital Advice and Help
My husband and I have had a tumultuous marriage from the start with terrible family dynamics and our own strong personalities butting heads. Over the years we withdrew from each other, essentially roommates, but stayed together for the sake of the children. We created a lot of hurt and trauma over the years but despite all odds and God’s grace, we are celebrating our 15th anniversary this year. Your podcast has shed so much light on our ourselves, our marriage and provided solid advice on life and overcoming issues. We are actively working to fully restore and renew our marriage. Thank you for providing us hope for a better and stronger marriage! We’re on our way there!
You guys are so easy and fun to listen
I love listening to you! I love that you guys are a couple and yins to your yans. I could do with out the religious but even even talking about faith is helpful. I am currently separated trying to deal with a husband that I suspect is alcoholic, dealing with my own trust issues all while being a mom of 3 little ones. I am a devoted fan, I take so much information from your programs and I look foward to carpooling and any type of stand since I discovered you! Keep up the amazing work! You have helped me so much... I even share your episodes with my life coach, husband and friends.
Raw and Authentic teaching
My husband and I just recently started listening to this podcast because our marriage of 30 years hit some rocky roads due to some major family crisis and empty nesting. I can’t say enough how each episode relates and challenges us to do more for us. I’m so very excited to keep going and grow our marriage to greater heights. Thank you.
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.
