The Xenos Marriage Mentorship program was developed in order to guide couples in fellowship into having a successful marriage while following God. Marian Guzzo, current administrator for the program, has been setting up couples with married mentors for about five years.
“We had the benefit of getting input from older believers,” and were able to gain a lot of wisdom and experience, Guzzo said. “It’s nice to have an objective place to go and to talk about the issues that might be stressing the marriage.”
Tammy Boone and her husband, Matt, have been mentoring couples since 2006 and said, from experience, the first year of marriage can be difficult. “There are many changes and moving through the process of living a single life to a married life isn’t necessarily intuitive.”
