Love and Marriage

February 14, 2012

The Pew Research Center released a report late last year that barely half of all adults in the Unites States are married, which is a record low. Four-in-ten Americans say that marriage is becoming obsolete, even while most people who have never married would like to do so.

On this episode of Community Conversation, host Crystal Sarakas leads a discussion about the challenges that relationships face today, and will talk about the history of marriage.

Guests: 
Sharon Sassler, Associate Professor, Cornell University
Stephanie Coontz, author of "Marriage, A History: How Love Conquered Marriage"
