Marriage study for young couples to be held Oct. 16

“Fit To Be Tied” is a series of studies for newlyweds, engaged students, and couples seriously considering engagement, to learn more about the realities of marriage.

David Wheeler, a professor in Johnson’s School of Congregational Ministry, and his wife, Cathy, started this series 21 years ago to provide young couples with guidance in relation to marriage.

“We want to destroy the fantasy of what marriage is gonna be like without quenching the flames,” David Wheeler said. “You know, look at us – we’re ridiculously in love, this is a good thing – but you’ve got to work at it.”

“The first one is just kind of the myth busters,” Wheeler said. “Just talking about ‘here’s some fantasies about what you think it’s going to be like’ and destroy some of the myths.”

The first session, “The Myths of Marriage”, will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at David and Cathy Wheeler’s home, on JUTN’s campus, at 2348 Gateway Court.

Other topics include finances, communication, parenting, and more.

The next session will be Nov. 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. This date may change.
