This brief reviews current literature regarding same-sex couples and LGB individuals to better understand their needs, strengths, and challenges; how they differ from and are similar to heterosexual couples; existing efforts to provide same-sex focused relationship education; and suggestions for expanding and providing culturally competent same-sex relationship and marriage education. As such, this brief intends to support various social services agencies as they integrate relationship education into their services to effectively meet the needs of heterosexual and LGB individuals and couples.
