The Marriage.com Voice

We are "A trusted advisor and expert".

  • We speak with EMPATHY to make the reader feel heard and understood
  • We are RESPECTFUL of the reader’s needs, situation, and intelligence

Tone

There is one voice for Marriage.com, but many tones reflect that voice depending on the scenario. Consider the reader’s state of mind -- are they new to marriage and feeling overwhelmed? Are they feeling settled in and looking for ways to advance the quality of their relationship? Once you have a sense of how your reader is feeling, adjust the tone to match their emotional state.

Important Aspects to Remember

1. Originality

Make sure that your submissions are 100% original. We have a zero-tolerance policy on plagiarism.

2. The headline

The most important aspect of any article is its headline. Make it catchy, appealing, and short (within 5 to 7 words or under 65 characters, please).

3. Word limit

Your article should explain the topic well. For this, you need to:

  • Search for the top-ranking articles online and cover as much as possible in the article to ensure that it helps the readers understand it well
  • Ensure that it offers a solution instead of just pointing out a problem.

4. Our Golden Rules

These rules define the content we publish. So make sure that your content reflects these to make it a part of our website:

  • Clarity & Ease of Comprehension:

  • If it takes a user more than 5 seconds to understand what the concepts are and what they can expect to learn from the content, it’s not clear enough.

  • Purpose & Specificity:

  • The reader needs to understand the purpose and feel it throughout the piece of content. Avoid anything that feels fluffy and too broad.

  • Engaging & Scannable:

  • Ensure good use of spacing, styling (bold, italics…), imagery/videos, proper titles, subheaders, and section heads that drive the user to think - "I want to know more".

To make the copy easy to read and understand, use multiple subheadings. It provides a better understanding of your article. Keep paragraphs and sentences short i.e., 50 words or less.

5. Credibility

Justify your claims in an article by citing and linking to recent studies, research, or surveys (sources should not be over 5 years old, although exceptions can be there for popular studies that established certain facts or links to popular books).

Here are a few examples of links that can make your article authoritative and credible:

Does Couples’ Communication Predict Marital Satisfaction? - A 2016 study

Marriage and cohabitation in the U.S. - A 2019 survey

Concepts from the 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

Submitting an article that talks about what therapy or counseling offers? Make sure that either:

  • You are an expert on the subject or
  • You have a quote from a credible therapist/expert on the same.

6. Language

All submissions should be in American English. Also, please refrain from using words or sentences that convey any type of bias or sweeping generalizations.

7. Images

It would be great if you share an accompanying image for your blog post or article. Use a high-quality image that you own or have permission to use. Ideal image size: 804 (height) x 350 (width).

8. Add a bio

Write 2-4 short and crisp lines about yourself. You can link it to your blog, Facebook, or Twitter page as well. This is mandatory as we cannot publish the article without your bio.

9. Link

You can add one link from your author bio. Please note that we do not accept links to gambling sites, adult content, sites selling drugs, and sex toys. We do not publish content related in any manner to such topics either.
