  • What’s happening here?

  • Objectives

    • Examine issues about marriage, divorce, and remarriage

    • Apply our knowledge to exam questions, using key concept vocabulary (KCV)

    • How many here people plan to be married at some point in their lives?

  • Why do some people get married in the first place?

    • Write down a spidergram of possible reasons…

    Why do people get married?

  • There are many reasons for marriage…

    • Religious people will regard marriage as something God-given, as a lifelong commitment, and as the best basis for creating a family.

    • Many people feel that traditional symbols of marriage are symbols of inequality, and that they reinforce real inequalities today.

  • A feminist critique…

    • An ex-colleague of mine (Nyomi) recently married her partner of 11 years. Read her blog about their reasons for marrying.

    • Nyomi cites a lot of evidence that unmarried couples are discriminated against in law. Why might this be the case?

    (Nyomi has given permission for this material to be used).

  • What happens in a religious wedding?

    • For many people, the symbols of marriage do not have to represent inequality. Religious people see marriage as an important part of society.

    • Go to the website below and have a go at planning a church of England wedding..!

  • 15 mark question

    • The question on the next slide appeared on a recent exam. Have a go at writing an answer, using the material you have been studying so far.

    • Remember it is a 15 mark question so needs to have plenty of reasons for and against the quotation, with references to religious teachings or other evidence.

    • Remember this is about giving reasons for allowing or not allowing divorce. Do not simply explain religious teachings about divorce.

  • “Marriage should be for life.” Do you agree? Give reasons or evidence for your answer, showing that you have thought about more than one point of view.

    You must include reference to religious beliefs in your answer. (15)

    • For: Some people think…

    • You can include a few points here. Use RT and explain how they influence the behaviour of believers.

    • Against: Others think…

    • In conclusion…

  • Love

    • Remember to try to use the KCV:

    Adultery having a sexual relationship with someone other than the person you are married to

    Divorce when a married couple legally breakup

    Cohabitation living together with someone when you are not married

    Commitment a sense of dedication and obligation to someone or something

    Contraception different methods used during sex to avoid pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections

    Gender Equality when men and women are treated equally in the roles they fulfil

  • Marriage v remarriage v cohabitation

    • In this lesson, we will examine and evaluate attitudes to cohabitation and remarriage within religions.

  • Odd one out

    • For the three pictures on the next slide, try to think about how they are similar and different to each other, from what you can deduce from the pictures themselves.

  • • Is it possible to tell, from the pictures, which families are cohabiting? Which might be a reconstituted or blended family? Which family has had a divorce and remarriage?

    • It’s important to emphasise the point from the first lesson in the unit that families come in all shapes and sizes.

    • However, cohabitation is very much on the increase.

  • Cohabitation figures (source: ONS, 2012)

  • As you watch the discussion, think about why cohabitation appears to be

    on the rise. • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqeu5Kt

    • Remember my old colleague from 2 lessons ago; she and her partner and two children were perfectly happy without being married.

    • Does cohabiting mean something better than marriage, or is it a good idea to cohabit before being married?
