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.

Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, CASA, CSE

One of a handful of global experts on polyamory and the foremost international expert on children in polyamorous families, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff has studied gender and
families of sexual minorities for the last 16 years. Sheff’s television appearances include CNN, and the National Geographic, and she has given more than 20 radio, podcast, print, and television interviews with sources from Radio Slovenia to National Public Radio, the Sunday London Times to the Boston Globe and Newsweek. By emphasizing research methodology and findings in her discussions, Dr. Sheff presents the kind of public intellectualism that encourages audience members to think critically regarding gender, sexualities, and families.
