Towards the end of World War II, the divorce rate in the United States climbed at a rapid pace - almost doubling the pre-war rate. Social reformers began to panic, since divided families could erode the basic foundation of our society. Young couples wererushing off to get married and raise families without considering incompatibilities that could cause significant problems down the road. Marrying below one's station or social class was also a big concern as was the rush to wed just to have sex. The filmson this DVD, drawn from the A/V Geeks Educational Film Archive, were created as cautionary tales so couples could look at their own relationships and, hopefully, avoid taking a plunge into truly awful marriages. While the divorce rate did eventually return to pre-war levels in the decades to come, the challenges to marriage became more complex and these films quickly lost their usefulness.Social-Sex Attitudes in Adolescence (1953 - Crawley Films - 23 minutes): This surprisingly progressive film teaches us that well-adjusted couple, Bill and Mary, weren't just born that way. The parents had to constantly shape and hone their offspring into the perfect young adults that they are - and even then, there were problems. Mary keeps getting crushes on her girlfriends and Bill is having a grand old time sowing his wild oats with the fast crowd.How Do You Know It's Love? (1950 - Coronet Films - 13 minutes): Nora and Jack seem to be in love but neither of them are sure. Jack asks his older brother for advice and Nora turns to Mom and her trusty scrapbook to figure things out. But now that they are both clear on what "love" is, could Nora's dislike of Chinese food ultimately break the couple up?Are You Ready For Marriage? (1950 - Coronet Film
