Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's very little of potential concern here. The adults are frequently shown drinking alcohol, "damn" is used once, and there's a lot of kissing, although not with tongue. The theme of what it takes to make a marriage work is central to the story. In general the movie is unlikely to be of interest to kids, but they certainly don't need to leave the room when it's on.

Sexual Content

The newlyweds are seen kissing a lot, especially at the beginning. The kisses are long, but there's no tongue. They're shown lying in bed together fully clothed and bundled against the cold. Corie is seen once in pants and a bra and once in a full slip as she's getting dressed.


Not applicable


"Damn" is used once.

Social Behavior

Making a marriage work takes compromise. You have to sacrifice a little bit of yourself to make your spouse happy. You'll be a better person if you incorporate the best of your spouse into yourself.


Lord and Taylor is mentioned once.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The characters are frequently depicted drinking alcoholic beverages.
