The primary services to be tested shall be designed to achieve these ends by promoting healthy marriage and healthy parental relationships. The Kentucky Healthy Marriage shall be a three (3) year effort to increase child well-being through the advancement of optimal family structures and increase marital and parental commitments characterized by a lifelong love and commitment and decrease those relationships which are not. Services shall be primarily focused on couples that either have or are expecting a child.
