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.

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!
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.
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.
Listening to current and downloading all the previous podcasts!
Practical advice that is helpful and also entertaining. A range of informative material, varying from the "well duh why didn't I think of that" to the "my word that's deep," which then causes me to rewind and listen to the said advice multiple times to ensure that I understand it! Great chemistry, great advice, great podcast!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Accurate and Encouraging!
I’m new to podcasts and to OYF but I cannot get enough of Caleb and Verlynda! Their wisdom and advice are well researched, calmly and openly expressed, and so very true! I began my search for podcasts to improve my marriage and family life and landed here. After my first listen I knew I would stick around. I found a few episodes specific to recent situations and struggles in my life and, once, was even brought to tears as I listened and recognized myself in a stage Caleb was describing. Thank you for the sound advice and information, for the tips and explanations provided in each episode. You are helping me process issues in myself and issues in my marriage and ways to restore and improve my relationship with my spouse. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!
