Summary
"In Making Marriage Work, Kristin Celello offers an insightful and wide-ranging account of marriage and divorce in America in the twentieth century, focusing on the development of the idea of marriage as "work."" "Celello reveals how, over the decades, visiting marriage counselors, reading advice columns in women's magazines, and watching portrayals of marriage and divorce on television and in film effectively ingrained the notion of marriage as work into the minds of American women and men. Examining the rise of the marriage counseling profession and the emergence of other relationship "experts" between the 1930s and the 1990s, Celello describes how professionals and the public responded to fears about divorce and family breakdown and worked together to define the nature of marital work." "Making Marriage Work offers a new interpretation of married life in the United States, illuminating the interaction of marriage and divorce over the century and revealing how the idea the marriage requires work became part of Amercans' collective consciousness."--Jacket
