Marriage Can Be Difficult
Parenting is an ever-changing job. As soon as you think you’ve got one stage conquered, along comes another challenging you to adjust and fine-tune your parenting skills.
Marriage is also ever-changing. While the changes may not be as apparent as the obvious growth from infant to childhood to teen to young adult, they are there nonetheless, requiring constant attention.
What makes marriage more difficult than child rearing is that both parties are changing at different times and different rates, with neither having the age or experience to provide any perspective, and neither having the authority to make decisions or the wisdom to offer compromise.
That’s when a mentor couple can be helpful.
