For more than a quarter century, the mission of the non-profit PAIRS Foundation has been to teach those attitudes, emotional understandings, and behaviours that nurture and sustain healthy relationships and to make this knowledge broadly available on behalf of a safer, saner and more loving world.

Marriage has changed. In previous generations, marriages were based on security and stability as well as raising children. Modern marriages require more than simple pre-defined roles -- they require intimacy. Marriage today requires equality between partners, a focus on physical closeness, mutual understanding and relationship skills. This kind of relationship creates a foundation for stable families and a lifetime of love and companionship.

PAIRS (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills) programs provides a research-based, proven system to create and sustain loving, intimate relationships. PAIRS uses the best practices from psychology, education and psychotherapy to teach these skills in a unique and comprehensive way.
