Adding three weeks to a date

I need to compute several dates based on another date. I understand how to use the GregorianCalendar to add weeks to another GregorianCalendar object, but I have a date. Is it really necessary to get each portion of my date in order to instantiate the GregorianCalendar object? I don't see where the constructor takes a date. Any suggestions?

Thank you so much! I'm still fairly new and I overlook things. So, you intantiate the object to today's date, then set the time to your date object. Works for me!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
