Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The economics of marriage is the economic analysis of the role of marriage in household formation (and break up), of production and distribution decisions within the household and the influence marriage has on these and the influence of legal systems on way in which individuals marry and divorce. Grossbard-Shechtman (1999a and 1999b) identifies three approaches to the subject: the Marxist approach (Friedrich Engels (1884) and Himmelweit and Mohun (1977)), the neo-classical approach (Gary Becker (1974)) and the game theoretic approaches (Marilyn Manser, Murray Brown, Marjorie McElroy and Mary Jane Horney).show more
