Last night, Dania and I watched a movie that we enjoyed and strongly recommend for Catholic teenage boys and young men wrestling with thoughts of marriage, meeting girls, etc..
The movie “Marty” was produced in 1955, starring Ernest Borgnine. It’s about a 34 year old “fat, ugly man” who lives in a Catholic Italian family, who works as a butcher, and is being pressured by all of his relatives, neighbors, customers and friends to get married. His younger siblings and friends are getting married and starting families, but Marty is single.
Marty is finally pressured to go out to a social hall to meet girls and he agrees to do so.
I’ll leave the rest for you to learn when you watch it.
It’s a great movie for young men, teaching the real issues involved in single life and the challenges of finding a like-minded, Catholic spouse in the midst of sinful peer pressure and real-life obstacles.
