Overview

The high rate of marital distress and divorce, especially within the first few years of marriage, seems to indicate that couples are not adequately prepared to deal with the challenges of marriage. Concern for this issue has prompted professionals to propose mentoring for premarital and newly married couples as a way of helping them prepare for marriage. Significant research in the areas of business, education, and at-risk youth reveal that mentoring offers numerous benefits for those who are engaged in it. This study takes a look at the mentoring process and its effect on the attitude and behavior of premarital couples. Triangulation of data was used in the form of a mentoring survey and a focus group so that information could be collected for concurrent validity. The results of this study showed that marriage mentoring was most helpful in the areas of helping couples have more realistic expectations for marriage and as a way of providing support and confidence for starting marriage. It also indicated that different types of couples may benefit in different ways from the mentoring ex­perience according to their strengths and growth areas.
