Marriage Assessment

The Focus on the Family Marriage Assessment is designed to evaluate the strength of 12 essential traits of your marriage. Do you know your marriage’s strengths and weaknesses?

Welcome to the Marriage Assessment!

We are so glad you’ve taken this step to invest in your marriage.  Dr. Greg and Erin Smalley have spent years studying why marriages thrive.  They’ve found there are 12 behaviors that consistently make up great marriages.

What is the Marriage Assessment about?

Based on research and experience from the Smalleys, Focus on the Family has created valid and reliable questions that evaluate the strength of 12 essential traits of your marriage—areas such as communication, conflict, and commitment.

The assessment is free and takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Who should take the assessment?

The questions are designed for married couples. Every marriage has areas that are working well and areas that could use improvement. If you want to identify your strengths and find tools to help you grow, this assessment is for you.

STEP 1: How Do I Get Started?

  1. Each spouse takes the free assessment individually (about 10 minutes)


  1. Access your report through the link at the end of the assessment. We will also email you with a link to your assessment results. To be able to return to your results at any time, be sure to save the report as a PDF.


  1. Discuss the report with your spouse, and check out the suggested resources to further enhance your relationship.


NB. After you take the assessment you will be directed to specific articles and resources on the Focus US site. Please note that all these articles and resources are available locally on our Focus Africa page. Click below: Articles and Resources to access it.
