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.

Highly recommended by a fellow mental health counselor!
Truly the best marriage podcast I’ve found. I recommend it to my clients and learn so much for myself in my own practice, and for my own marriage.

OYF is a thoughtful podcast with a wide variety of topics delivered with grace, maturity, dignity, and charm.
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.
Great podcast on marital issues
This was exactly what I was looking for. The topics are spot on. I’m glad to get research based info, and the show is bite sized enough to keep my husband’s attention. I have to agree that the announcer is just awful and detracts from otherwise normal, non irritating voices. It’s like Winona Ryder trying to fake an overly annunciated British accent with a terrible head cold. It’s really intolerable considering you have to listen to her 3 times each episode. The hosts are great though!
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!
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!
I'm going through trauma now from affair discovery - listening to your podcasts helps me understand! What he did is wrong no matter what but I'm glad I can learn more of the why.
This a great podcast with actionable tips to help you “keep that loving feeling”. And they are a fun couple with light hearted banter.
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
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.

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.

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.
