      Many of us like to watch a good movie. Hollywood churns out a disproportionate number of movies that focus on romance, physical attraction and young love. Our culture can’t seem to get enough of young women who ditch honorable men and fall for the carefree bad boy. The beautiful young actress is swept off her feet by an attractive guy she hardly knows, but feels (or wants to feel) an emotional connection and physical attraction (Dear John, The Last Song, Titanic to name a few). Somehow, these movies are like romance novels, making life and relationships seem so easy and dreamy.
      Let’s keep today’s show light. I’m always searching for good, quality movies that present marriage in a positive light. Can you recommend any? Please call and let me know. I have a few we can discuss: Date Night (2010), Why Did I Get Married Too? (2010) and The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio (2005). Please help me expand this list from current or not so current movies. If you’re reading this description before the show, please watch one or more of the movies I recommend and join in the conversation. 760-512-7243.
