Course Description

SOC 208
Marriage and the Family [Lecture] (3.0)

This course is designed to assist students in making decisions about dating, marriage and parenting. Marriage is one of the primary decisions one makes in his/her lifetime, yet in our society we take this decision so lightly. The high rate of divorce in our society seems to indicate that marriage is not a lifetime commitment, but a commitment to the relationship until one or both partners decide the relationship is no longer meaningful. The goal is to create and then sustain healthy intimate relationships. Also listed as SWK 208.
