"Within a culture that increasingly devalues marriage, couples preparing to get married and those looking to strengthen their marriages need mentors who can model what a strong lasting marriage looks like and teach them the skills of successful relationships. The purpose of marriage mentoring is for a mature, successfully married couple to intentionally invest in the preparation, enrichment, and or restoration of another couple’s relationship. By walking alongside those couples with love, compassion and transparency, mentors can be instrumental in reducing the number of divorces and fractured families."

Wives, understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. The husband provides leadership to his wife the way Christ does to his church, not by domineering but by cherishing. So just as the church submits to Christ as he exercises such leadership, wives should likewise submit to their husbands. Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church—a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ’s love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in dazzling white silk, radiant with holiness. And that is how husbands ought to love their wives. They’re really doing themselves a favor—since they’re already “one” in marriage.
