    Unlike prior evidence for the U.S. and the Netherlands, data from Chile suggest that "specialization" (having different roles in the household) is associated with a lower probability of divorce and separation for both married and cohabiting couples.

    Dayswork, by Chris Bachelder and Jennifer Habel. You are a writer fascinated with Melvillians and the many biographers of the famous author and the ways their own lives, and marriages may all be echoing each other across the centuries. 4 of 5 library cats 🐈 🐈 🐈 🐳.

    The Meaning of Marriage

    This volume brings together the best of contemporary scholarship on marriage from a variety of disciplines - history, ethics, economics, law and public policy, philosophy, sociology, psychiatry, political science - to inform, and reform, public debate. Rigorous yet accessible, these studies aim to rethink and re-present the case for marriage as a positive institution and ideal that is in the public interest and serves the common good.

    This week I've been mainly reading, no. 99.

    Rachel Ingalls' short(ish) Binstead’s Safari (1983/2013) is a focussed tale of male stupidity & self-deception and the positive effect of leaving one's country and finding yourself (the wife's story). It focusses on miss communication in & salvation through becoming someone different when circumstances allow. While having a rather downbeat (but logical) end, it is an acute exploration of how male self-obsession wrecks lives.
