This ambitious study presents a comprehensive history of marriage from the seventeenth century to the present day. John Gillis draws on evidence from folk lore and ritual, wedding rites, and the personal accounts of men and women, to illustrate in rich detail the perpetual difference between the ideal of marriage and the actual reality.
