The roles and responsibilities of husbands, wives, and couples as well as how to solve the most difficult problems of married life will be covered. Those who are interested are encouraged to sign up for the class as
soon as possible. Single people are allowed to attend. Married couples are strongly urged to attend together if at all possible.
