The ‘state of marriage’ discussion at Lifetree

The state of marriage in America will be explored at Granbury’s two Lifetree Café locations on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Lakeside Baptist Church Ministry Center, 3410 Glen Rose Highway and again on Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. at Stumpy’s Lakeside Grill, 2323 S. Morgan St.

The program—“Is Marriage Obsolete? Why More People Are Saying, ‘I Don’t’”—will examine the declining marriage rate and the underlying causes of the trend.

“With divorces on the rise and people getting married later or not marrying at all, the institution of marriage is coming under fire,” said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “Some wonder if marriage is an outdated concept and is still needed.”

The program encourages those who attend to share their views of marriage.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith. Call Lakeside Baptist Church at 817-573-2094 for information.
