Getting engaged and married is a scary thought, you have to think far beyond the simple fear of being committed to someone for the rest of your life. You have to plan ahead, you have to think long-term, you have to make sure that you’re not getting married just because someone asked you. You have to get married because you want to get married. To that end, the Marriage Resource Center of Frederick County offers you premarital mentoring.
Premarital Mentoring utilizes a mentor couple that has been trained in the use of Prepare/Enrich, which is an online, relationship assessment tool. Each member of the engaged or seriously-dating couple being mentored takes about an hour to complete this online assessment. When they have both completed the assessment, the mentor couple receives a 25 page report describing in detail how each participant responded to over 180 statements about their relationship.
This has proven to be a very successful tool in not only recognizing the areas where teaching and growth are needed, but it also shows the strength areas that the couple can be encouraged in. The mentors in this area have a wonderful opportunity to not only enhance the couple’s entire marriage experience, but to also greatly increase the chances of it lasting a lifetime.
