9780060931568: A History of the Wife

From Eve to breadwinner, this title traces the history of the wife in Western society, charting the change in the status of women from mere chattels to equal partners in companionate marriage with control of their own property. Drawing on sources such as myth, letters, diaries and legal documents, it examines shifts in the marital relationship from the ancient world to the second half of the 20th century.

Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. How did marriage, considered a religious duty in medieval Europe, become a venue for personal fulfillment in contemporary America? How did the notion of romantic love, a novelty in the Middle Ages, become a prerequisite for marriage today? And, if the original purpose of marriage was procreation, what exactly is the purpose of marriage for women now? Combining a scholar s rigor and a storyteller s craft (San Jose Mercury News), distinguished cultural historian Marilyn Yalom charts the evolution of marriage in the Judeo Christian world through the centuries and shows how radically our ideas about marriage have changed. For any woman who is, has been, or ever will be married, this intellectually vigorous and gripping historical analysis of marriage sheds new light on an institution most people take for granted, and that may, in fact, be experiencing its most convulsive upheaval since the Reformation.
