It is a beautiful thing when you can find a someone to mentor you along the way in whatever you and/or your spouse do. One of mine and Jasmine’s goals is to have an older couple that has a great marriage mentor us throughout our entire marriage if possible. I believe that a good thing can only become better with wise counsel.
What people don’t usually realize is that it takes humility, a want to grow and openness. It also allows for good communication and an outside perspective. We would recommend it to everyone, because let’s face it, marriage isn’t always rainbows and unicorns.
Admitting that you need mentoring isn’t a sign of weakness.
It took doing marriage for awhile to realize that we wanted this. We needed it. If people have a great marriage and have been doing it longer than you have, then they probably have some decent advice to share.
