The Marriage-Go-Round: The State of Marriage and the Family in America Today

The Marriage-Go-Round: The State of Marriage and the Family in America Today by Andrew J. Cherlin
English | December 8th, 2010 | ASIN: B004DEPIAQ, ISBN: 0307386384, 0307266893 | 235 Pages | EPUB | 2.33 MB

Andrew J. Cherlin's three decades of study have shown him that marriage in America is a social and political battlefield in a way that it isn't in other developed countries.

The difference comes from Americans' embrace of two contradictory cultural ideals: marriage, a formal commitment to share one's life with another; and individualism, which emphasizes personal choice and self-development.
