Is Love Essential to Marriage? April 7, 2014

‘Pascal Bruckner (2013) argues that in the past, marriage was sacred, and love, if it existed at all, was a kind of bonus; now that love has come to be seen as essential in marriage, love is perceived as sacred and marriage as secondary. Accordingly, the number of marriages has been declining, while divorce, unmarried couples and single-parent families are increasing. Bruckner notes that it seems that love has triumphed over marriage, but now it is destroying it from inside.’
