"I ONLY WANT TO GET MARRIED ONCE" - AUTHOR CHANA LEVITAN
Date: January 13, 2019, 7:30pm
Location: Young Israel of Century City
World-renowned author and lecturer Chana Levitan spoke to 97 single men and women from the LA area about about how to make the most important decision of your life: picking the right spouse. Ms. Levitan's book I Only Want to Get Married Once is an international best-seller that has helped thousands of young people approach this difficult topic.
The following is a summary of her presentation from 1/13/19:
Chana Levitan spoke about how shared values are the most important consideration in choosing a spouse, and that many people are overwhelmed by personal chemistry/attraction in a way that makes them blind to the larger issues. Her talk touched upon: (1) why marriage matters and is important, (2) how a person must identify his or her own values/beliefs in order to know what to look for, and (3) the five things necessary for lasting love, including shared values, healthy boundaries, trust, respect, and good communication. Participants filled out a worksheet during the lecture in order to write down their own values and begin the process of introspection.
