In the year 1950, a film was made by Coronet Instructional Films on how a couple can realize how to tell if they are ready for marriage. There are many good conversation topics in here to work through as a couple and it’s amazing how much they had right back then (though, I didn’t agree with the length of engagement chart… as long as the couple has known each other and been around each other for at least a year, an extra year for engagement is normally plenty).
The main male lead states, “I guess you might say, we’re engaged to be engaged!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Even back then, they realized how necessary pre-engagement counseling is. In our pre-engagement counseling, we cover those things that couples should consider in the video and much, much more (and at a much deeper level as well)! So, sit back, relax and enjoy the below while pondering how relationships progressed in yesteryear.
