A History of Marriage is a fascinating exploration of how marriage developed, and in light of the forces that continue to shape it, how marriage is likely to look in the future. Elizabeth Abbott, who made celibacy sexy in her acclaimed book A History of Celibacy, offers an absorbing blend of information and explanation. Real-life experiences are presented in their wider historical context: What were a couple's alternatives to staying together? What were the longevity rates and how long was the average marriage until death ended it? What were the differences between the experiences of wealthier and poorer spouses? In a provocative and lively style, Abbott puts a human face on marriage as she explores its nature in the context of love, sex, loyalty, childrearing, shared finances, and social recognition.
