Alternate Activity 2: Sharing Couple Stories

Activity time: 30 minutes

Description of Activity

This activity can replace Activity 2, Getting Acquainted, or can be used in addition to Activity 2.

Invite each couple to introduce themselves as a couple. They may wish to tell the group who they are, how long they've been together, where they've lived, whether they have children or live with other family members, what hobbies they enjoy together, or other relevant information.

Set a time limit for each couple's sharing so that this activity does not last longer than thirty minutes. You may wish to appoint someone to time the introductions and give a gentle signal when time's up.

Including All Participants

Arranging participants in a circle for this activity increases participants' ability to hear and see one another.
