Review of For Better for Worse: Should I Get Married? By Neel Burton
For such a light and accessible read, Neel Burton’s new book For Better For Worse: Should I get Married? is surprisingly dense with information. A compendium of entries from Burton’s Psychology Today blog, For Better For Worse could also be subtitled A Thinking Person’s Brief Guide to the History and Reality of Marriage. Tackling diverse topics from monogamy, polyamory, and polygamy to Biblical love and marriage, the philosophy of lust, and a feminist critique of marriage, For Better For Worse offers delightfully bite-sized intellectual tidbits on love and marriage in social context.
