MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project was to write a premarital counseling curriculum for Christians preparing to get remarried. In order to write an effective curriculum, seventeen Christian couples in second marriages were interviewed. Their life experiences and how they overcame the additional stresses and struggles of remarriage were paired with pertinent Bible passages and homework assignments to develop the curriculum.The couples interviewed included those who were not guilty of breaking their marriage vows, as well as those who had broken their vows but demonstrated repentant hearts through their words and actions. Five couples were included from Donelson Cumberland Presbyterian Church and other couples were asked to participate with the guidance of pastors who served on the pastoral panel for the project. The pastoral panel evaluated both the questions asked in the interviews as well as the premarital counseling curriculum itself.
