Talk to your kids about…


In this movie, one character says to another, “There are mistakes you cannot risk when you have children.” How do children suffer differently than adults in a marriage breakup?

In various scenes, people make decisions (like not drinking alcohol) that prevent mistakes from happening that could destroy relationships. On the other hand, characters often put themselves in situations where they are alone with members of the opposite sex. In a marriage, what “rules” do you feel are important to follow in order to avoid the temptation of wanting to be with someone else more than your spouse?
