Lou Kueger’s Marriage Manifesto!
September 27, 2012 Comments Off on Lou Kueger’s Marriage Manifesto!
Join us on Wednesday evening around 9pm in Holmes, Harder Hall to hear Lou give his Marriage Manifesto. Here’s what he says about it:
Observations and reflections on the nature of love and relationships developed primarily, but not exclusively, for students in their twenties.
“I am an artist–– not a psychologist, the Manifesto is as much a performance as it is anything else. My ideas are sometimes irreverent, possibly wrong-headed, but should keep you engaged long enough to realize that few of us know crap about love. We just like to think we do.”
Seven years ago a handful of our graduating seniors (Bowling Green State University) asked me to grab a beer and share my thoughts on love and marriage with them. After a pretty crazy evening I went home that night and began the Marriage Manifesto. What started as a two-page, tongue-in-cheek document has grown each year to an ever-expanding and more thoughtful fifteen-page manuscript, and fifty-five minute presentation.
I have read the Manifesto on the steps of the Duomo in Florence, Italy several times at Bowling Green State University, and twice at Indiana University. It’s been suggested many times that I publish it or put it online but I think it works best in person with a live audience (as opposed to a dead one).
If you are easily offended this is probably not the talk for you. This presentation is rated R for language, and UI for the occasional unseemly image.
