Mentor Couple Training
One of the key elements to a successful Community Marriage Policy is to train Mentor Couples in churches and in the community who make themselves available to meet with other couples who are preparing for marriage or who have experienced a crisis in their marriage and are
trained to help others through a similar experience. The concept has been developed by a number of organizations and training is offered in a number of settings. The training of Mentor Couples is a way that churches and communities can strengthen marriages and significantly reduce the divorce rate.
Accordingly to Mike McManus, “The major reform our church pioneered was to train older, solidly married couples to give the inventory and mentor those preparing for marriage…. This is a lavish investment of time, giving young couples what may be their first exposure to a vibrant, joyful marriage.”
