Work in a group of 3-4 students. Discuss the following warm-up questions / activities:
- What does "household" mean to you? Can you use it in a sentence? Can you give examples?
- Brainstorm words and ideas associated with "household" for 2 minutes in Exercise 1. Spend another 5 minutes or less discussing the words and ideas together.
- Do you agree or disagree? Why?
- Marriage has been an important part of society, is important now, and will continue to be important in the future.
- Marriage is old-fashioned. To be single and to have short-term relationships is best.
- There is little reason to get married if a couple is already living together (i.e., the mystery of marriage is gone).
- Children need to have contact with their extended family of cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.
- It's wrong, disgusting, and/or sinful for an unmarried couple to live together.
- Your son / daughter never wants to get married because it will take away their freedom. Instead, he / she prefers to live with a partner out of wedlock. Would you agree with the decision?
- Would you demand that they get married?
- Would you be happy that he / she found someone, and not care if they don't get married?
- Would you think that your child is living in sin, and be disappointed with his / her decision?
- Would you be worried about any grandchildren that were eventually born? Why?
