Marriage, a History: From Obedience to Intimacy, or How Love Conquered Marriage Marriage, a History: From Obedience to Intimacy, or How Love Conquered Marriage by Stephanie Coontz


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a really fascinating look at the historical sweep of how the institution of marriage has changed. It provided a lot of good context for me how what we consider "traditional" marriage in the form of marrying by choice for love and personal fulfillment under the banner of the male breadwinner system is really a small moment in time in the sweep of it all. But kudos to the 50s!
