LOVE AND MARRIAGE

A professor in the field of human relations at MIT, with a similarity of approach and audience appeal to the Groves' books, has written a modern interpretation of modern marriage. With a stress on mutuality throughout, this considers the emotions shared, the coordination of decisions made, and traces the steps for proper preparation for marriage from childhood on, gives information and advice on pre-marital sex experience, sex education, the criteria for marriage (more analysis, less romance), the periods of courtship, engagement, honeymoon, and later adjustments and adaptations. Other factors considered are children, divorce, religion, proper sex relationship, and so on. Less stress on sex than in the Stokes' book (see P. 468)...A liberal, unevasive and understanding presentation, which perhaps states nothing new but is based on latest findings and figures.
