If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, a Twogether in Texas marriage education class is waiting for you.

Texas now offers free marriage education classes around the state. Couples who complete a class will save $60 on their marriage license. The classes focus on helping couples develop communication and conflict resolution skills and other tools for a strong relationship.

After completing the class, you will get a certificate that you can take to your county clerk to save $60 on a marriage license. You will then just pay a local fee of $20.  And you won’t have to wait 72 hours to be married. The waiting period is waived for couples who complete the course.
