Interview on Marriage
Recently a major television channel presented a series of programs on divorce. Husbands, wives, even children, involved in broken homes took part. These individuals were asked why they thought the divorces had occurred, what their future plans were, and if they had any helpful suggestions for others with similar problems. Those on the programs described situations that cried out for help. Yet no solutions were offered, and no examples given of sound, satisfying marriages.
As I watched these programs, I found myself thinking of the inspiration Christian Science can be in marriage, of my own marriage, and of comments I would make in answer to an interviewer's questions. Since both my husband and I are active Christian Scientists, the following "interview" with myself is an examination of the approach of one Christian Scientist to marriage. The interview, as I imagine it, would go somewhat like this:
Question: Good evening, Mrs. L. Could you tell us how long you've been married?
