Are your traditional, non-traditional, or a mixture of the two? Could the man cook the meals? Should the woman be the primary caretaker of children? Could she make more money than the man or be the primary bread winner for the household? Is it important that decisions be made together? Find out how your preferences may affect your relationships.
There is a difference between wanting to be a Power Couple and being a Power Couple. Are you the kind of couple that wants to move beyond admiring other couples to become the Power Couple of YOUR dreams? Being a Power Couple is not about being a couple that receives attention and accolades because of wealth, power, or fame. It is about connection and being a couple in partnership that knows how to walk together in mutual respect and agreement, with accountability, toward your personal and collective goals. Becoming a Power Couple is an attainable #RelationshipGoal IF you are both committed to that end.
This is the ONLY Couples Course purposed to help you build your Power Couple status by providing tools for managing agreement, skills to maintain respectful interactions, and customized Power Couple Blueprints to support your unique partnership, along with the guidance needed to propel you toward YOUR #RelationshipGoals.
Move from Stagnant to Dynamic...
Take Hold of YOUR POWER COUPLE STATUS
and Manifest Your #RelationshipGoals!
If you are still reading up tp this point, we believe that something that you have read resonates with you and you already have a vision for your relationship where you see yourselves… and you see yourselves as dynamic, influential people in your world, but you DO NOT know the path to get there. You are doing all you know to do with the information you have been given to manifest the vision you have as a couple, still the end results are usually more disagreements and disappointments.
It isn’t your fault. While there are clear roles and expectations for more traditional couples, there is no model for your unique relationship dynamics. You are most likely not a traditional couple and you have stepped outside the box and, in many ways, are 'doing your own thing' and trying to figure things out. But unlike some other couples, your relationship roles do not fit neatly and that creates some conflicts in your relationship.
There is a lot of advice for couples who desire to function in traditional male and female roles, however, there are few resources for those who take a more contemporary approach to relationships. Perhaps you are a free thinker with non-conformist thoughts about how you want your relationship to look. Or perhaps you desire to have a different type of relationship than what you saw growing up.
If you can identify with any of these ideas, the thought of being a Power Couple probably resonates with you as well - a couple with two people who are as equally talented and gifted as individuals as they are as a couple, where they combine their “super powers” to manifest great things and achieve their #RelationshipGoals.
It can be frustrating though. We understand… and we FEEL you. Why? Because we have been there.
We know what it’s like to not know how to walk in agreement.
We know how challenging it is to find common ground.
We understand how tough it can be to see beyond the differences.
AND we have experienced the satisfaction of working as a
team to accomplish greater #RelationshipGoals.
We made a decision to commit to our relationship and the work we needed to do to accomplish our #RelationshipGoals, so that we could become the couple we desired to be and stand on the other side of the struggle as witnesses to the journey... cheering you on and telling you that YOU CAN DO IT, TOO!
While we are grateful for the #RelationshipGoals we have achieved as a couple, the journey has not been easy. From the beginning of our friendship more than 25 years ago, we have strived to maintain a relationship that allowed us to continue to grow as individuals and also friends.
We were college sweethearts at Tuskegee University. When we met, one of us (Eugene) was an Architect major and the other (Andrea) was an Electrical Engineering & Mathematics major. We entered our friendship with the understanding that we both had big dreams for the future. As we grew in relationship, we began to envision ways that we could play a part in each other’s dreams and collaborate to do some amazing things together, but that was easier to dream about than it was to walk out as a couple.
Immediately after marriage, we began to receive (sometimes unsolicited) advice about what we needed to do in order to be the best husband and wife for each other. Any relationship challenges we expressed were presumed to be the result of NOT functioning in our relationship in certain roles. When we mentioned how one of us was in school or the other had a hectic schedule, the focus was brought back to traditional expectations and how fulfilling our proper roles was the solution to put everything “in order”. Eventually, we realized that we would need to be more intentional about finding our answers.
We committed ourselves to attending as many marriage conferences and workshops as possible. We learned a lot about principles of communication and conflict resolution strategies that were foundational to lasting relationships.
Yet most came from a traditional context where success was based on each partner’s ability to fulfill predetermined gender roles. Our personal experiences were much different than what was being presented to us about the roles of men and women in relationships. We also noticed that many of the African American relationships that we admired focused less on gender roles (Who's the Man?) and more on working in partnership and building on each other's strengths. That approach felt more natural for us.
We used characteristics of successful Black couples as our models. We found that, unlike the traditional model of relationships presented in the majority of culture, the models followed by African American couples who had satisfying relationships were more diverse. After many years of trial and error in our own relationship, we began to work on our own relationship curriculum based on what we had learned through research, relationship education courses, our lived experiences and our developing expertise.
One major difference in our coursework continues to be our emphasis on including experiences of couples with non-traditional roles. As a coach and an educator, we felt confident that we could create a course that would allow modern couples to find more success in their traditional and/or less traditional relationships, and WE WERE RIGHT.
Over the past decade, we continued to explore our own relationship while also working with other individuals, couples and families and conducting research about relationship education. Although the research and practices of successful African American Couples are the foundation of Power Couple Mentoring, the principles are effective for couples of all backgrounds who find themselves challenged to navigate modern relationships in the face of traditional expectations. Power Couple Mentoring combines all of our education, experiences and expertise into a one package for other “couples like us.”
"We can do more together than we can do apart."

Eugene & Andrea's STORY
When we say other “couples like us,” we mean, couples that do not easily fit into traditional expectations or simply desire to do something unique in their relationships. We understand that couples that do not fit neatly into traditional roles can have a harder time trying to figure out how to build a strong partnership. We also realize that these couples, couples like YOU, are often very driven to thrive as partners in their relationships to reach their #RelationshipGoals… and often they desire to be POWER COUPLES.

There initially was some dread, but you didn't play, "He said, she said."
It is "Let's!" And you provide a great example. Thank you both, so very much!
