How Love Conquered Marriage
Stephanie Coontz - 2005-05-19
Goodreads Rating
Discover the history of marriage in this groundbreaking book that challenges traditional beliefs. Historian and marriage expert Stephanie Coontz takes readers on a journey from ancient Babylon to Victorian times to show how recent the idea of marrying for love truly is. She argues that as marriage moved into the emotional sphere, it began to suffer as an institution but began to thrive as a personal relationship. Coontz brings intelligence, perspective, and wit to today's marital debate in this enlightening and hugely entertaining read.
