2013 Advisory Board Lecture: Stephanie Coontz

In “Courting Trouble? The World-Historical Transformation of Love & Marriage,”  Historian Stephanie Coontz discussed the fact that marriage has changed more in the past 35 years than in the previous 350 years.  Coontz historicized marriage from the Stone Age to the Internet Age, saying that marriage has become fairer and more fulfilling than in the past, but also more optional and fragile, and what that means for our society and our personal lives.
