The last three questions on Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage are:

Q.5: Should those who are unmarried get married?
Q.6: Should parents allow or stop their children from marrying?
Q.7: Can widows remarry?

Discussion Questions

1. Paul cited three reasons for saying that to remain single is better. What are these reasons? Do you agree?

2. What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of marrying and not marrying?

3. As a parent, what are your expectations on the matter of your children’s marriage? What do you believe is better for them – to marry or not to marry?

4. Widows may remarry, but statistics indicate that the percentage of widowers (men who lost their wives) who remarry is very high, while most widows (women who lost their husbands) choose not to remarry. Why do you think this is the case? Can you give some advice to help widows or widowers as they face life after their loss?
