MEN, WOMEN AND MARRIAGE by Ernest Havemann


Email this review


A sensible, sanguine approach to marriage in the '60's gives it a reasonable life expectancy but indicates some of the areas which are disillusion-disaster prone. Havemann is a book and magazine commentaor (some of his material appeared in Life and Cosmopolitan) and he writes about the shift in contemporary attitudes between the sexes (the lines have become blurred) and the nebulous notions of the young as they approach newly-wedded bliss, a mirage created by the media; of quarrels- which are useful, and of the general steps toward achieving happiness; of sexual satisfaction drawn from Kinsey; of divorce, remarriage, and finally the proper preparation of the young for this phase of their life... A commonsense competence here, at an accessible level of understanding and application.
