Ralph Richard Banks: Marriage in the 21st Century

On the eve of Valentine’s Day, Monday Night Philosophy wades into controversial waters about the institution of marriage. How important is it to society and culture? How have the ever-churning marital waters been particularly stirred up in the latter half of the 20th century? Ask family law professor Banks your own questions about the ideas discussed in his book and other issues currently affecting the institution of marriage.
