"A McGraw-Hill Text-Film correlated to the book YOUR MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIVING, by Paul H. Landis, State College of Washington. A young couple, Pat and Jim, consult a minister Dr. Hamilton, about marrying. He tells the stories of two marriages as examples - that of Bert and Betty Matthews and Helen and Hal. In the first, Bert returned to school while Betty supported him. This led to arguments about money and lack of social life. Hal and Helen married at 17 and soon had a child. Both realized they had missed many opportunities in life because they had married so young. Their stories are told in cut-away sections from the interview with Dr. Hamilton."
