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. Americans marry and divorce more often and have more live-in partners than Europeans, and gay Americans have more interest in legalizing same-sex marriage. 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.

Unnatural Frenchmen: The Politics of Priestly Celibacy and Marriage, 1720-1815

Unnatural Frenchmen: The Politics of Priestly Celibacy and Marriage, 1720-1815 by E. Claire Cage
English | July 1st, 2015 | ASIN: B00Q7BGPE6, ISBN: 0813937124 | 248 pages | EPUB/PDF | 8.60 MB

In Enlightenment and revolutionary France, new and pressing arguments emerged in the long debate over clerical celibacy. Appeals for the abolition of celibacy were couched primarily in the language of nature, social utility, and the "patrie." The attack only intensified after the legalization of priestly marriage during the Revolution, as marriage and procreation were considered patriotic duties. Some radical revolutionaries who saw celibacy as a crime against nature and the nation aggressively promoted clerical marriage by threatening unmarried priests with deportation, imprisonment, and even death.
