Just Marriage (New Democracy Forum)

Mary Lyndon Shanley


From the floor breaking criminal judgements on homosexual marriage to the advertising of marriage for low-income households, the "sacred establishment" of marriage has changed into a public battleground. Who can be allowed to marry and is marriage a public or inner most act? should still marriage be deserted thoroughly? Or should still marriage be redefined as a civil establishment that promotes sexual and racial equality?

As the fierce nationwide debate over same-sex marriage and civil unions maintains, Mary Lyndon Shanley argues that whereas the country may still proceed to play a task in regulating own relatives, the legislation needs to be essentially reformed if marriage is to develop into a extra simply establishment. Fourteen sought after writers and thinkers reply, together with Nancy F. Cott, William N. Eskridge, Jr., Amitai Etzioni, Martha Albertson Fineman, and Cass R. Sunstein.
