Major changes are taking place in contemporary marriage. This work analyses these changes in the context of both research and intervention. The authors connect marriage as an institution with marriage as a relationship, experienced and understood in different ways by individuals and within society. The book considers how marriages are formed, how and why some continue and others are ended and the ways in which the satisfactions, tensions and ambivalences in intimate relationships are resolved.
