Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the Law

Oup Usa (2012)
Abstract
This book addresses fundamental questions about marriage in moral and political philosophy. It examines promise, commitment, care, and contract to argue that marriage is not morally transformative. It argues that marriage discriminates against other forms of caring relationships and that, legally, restrictions on entry should be minimized
