The Future of Marriage - Up Next: Perspectives on the Future of Everything

9/28/2015; 29 minutes

As one of the leading family studies scholars in the country, Stephanie Coontz has over the years published a wide range of provocative Op-Ed pieces in such publications as The New York Times and the Washington Post. She's also the author of several books, including The Way We Never Were; The Social Origins of Family Life; and How Love Conquered Marriage, which U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy cited twice in the landmark opinion that he wrote this year on same-sex marriage. In this edition of Up Next, Coontz talks about the changing nature of marriage and how well the institution is likely to fare in the decades ahead. (#29841)
