Are you living together or doing life together?

Does your partner truly understand what makes you tick? What you need to feel valuedheard and supported? Is your marriage everything you expected? Do you wonder if you perhaps married the wrong person? Or are you simply looking for ways to enrich your marriage?

Every couple has a different reason for wanting a strong marriage; fulfillment, commitment, support, love, companionship and setting an example for their kids often top the list.

However, one thing is universally true: healthy, happy marriages don’t happen by accident.

There’s always potential to make your marriage happier and healthier than ever before!

Marriage Capsule will take you on a journey of discovery! We’ll start by asking the question “Is marriage worth it?”, we’ll help you find your unique temperaments (are you a Lake, Ocean, Fountain or Snow?), we’ll teach you the one thing your husband really wants and the one thing your wife really wants, before we look at communication and intimacy… and end off with actionable plans on how to design the perfect marriage!

All of this is done in the comfort of your own home! All you need is a computer/smart phone with internet connection! Marriage Capsule is for everyone! No matter if you’re engaged, newlyweds, or celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary, this challenge can change your life and your marriage!

This course is unlike any other marriage course you have ever seen! It is interactive, easy to work through and NOT boring! Best of all, we offer weekly support, so you are not alone on your journey!

Marriage Capsule Method  is the world’s first ‘gamified’ marriage course that encapsulates all you need to know to have a marriage that works. Built on 11 years of research, it uses elements of interaction (like points, videos, quizzes) to make this course a great experience, filled with the solutions you are looking for. Discover the secret to doing marriage better.

About Liezel

Hi, Im Liezel van der Merwe, married to Nico for almost 24 years, with two beautiful boys and a Daschund called Crunchie. For the last 12 years, I’ve inspired many couples to healthier and happier marriages with a marriage magazine, marriage websites & social media pages, marriage week, couple cruises & seminars and even commissioned the building of a Love Bridge for love locks!

I’m the creator of the Marriage Capsule Method…. a method that will help people navigate their way through the challenges that life brings, so that unhappy marriages, the pain of divorce and children living between divorced homes can be avoided at all costs. I’ve created a method that is unique and inspiring – much unlike the thousands of other marriage courses available. People do well when they feel that they are winning and I developed an online course where you will experience this feeling throughout. I’m passionate about living a great life in your marriage and family!
