'Are You Ready for Marriage?': Couples Counseling From 1950

From Coronet Instructional Films, marriage advice for young lovers ...

Larry proposes to his high school sweetheart, Sue, after a little over three short months of courtship. The couple is excited for married life, but Sue's parents think the lovebirds are rushing into things. After receiving such a negative response, the couple seeks counseling from their minister. Using scientific charts and a "Marriage Development" board, Mr. Hall teaches Sue and Larry that there's a lot more to marriage than "boing."
