“Newly married couples benefit by having access to couples who have already been through many of the things the newlyweds are just now encountering,” says Ron R. Lee in his interview with Les and Leslie Parrott for MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP magazine. Building a strong friendship with another couple allows natural mentoring, where newlyweds gain insight from hearing the stories of their marriage mentors. It also allows newly married couples to have a natural forum to discuss the struggles and joys of marriage.
How do both newlyweds and marriage mentors benefit from a mentoring relationship? What should newlyweds expect from a mentoring relationship? How should newlyweds choose marriage mentors? What examples of mentors are found in Scripture? This study will investigate all these questions and more.
