SEONGNAM, May 10 (Korea Bizwire) – Seongnam Arts Center is launching a family program tailored for middle-aged married couples and their children, as part of an initiative to help resolve common issues facing the age group through culture and the arts, the institution announced Monday.
Marriages in South Korea last for 14 years on average, with couples in their 40s having the highest divorce rate of any age group.
Against this backdrop, Seongnam Arts Center’s newly scheduled program is poised to bring families together in this day and age when quality family time is scarce due to the busy reality of Korean life, which could sometimes lead to divorce among middle-aged couples.
Through a workshop which will run from May 16 to June 9, 10 couples in their 40s and 50s will have an opportunity to listen to each other’s pulse and check their temperature in an effort to learn how to better understand each other, while talks will be held giving tips on how to improve marriage life.
Other programs scheduled for next month will see fathers and their children in elementary school come together every Saturday.
