About this product
- DescriptionRecent years have seen extensive discussion about the continuing retreat from marriage, the increasing demand for the right to marry from previously excluded groups, and the need to protect those who do t wish to marry from being forced to do so. At the same time, weddings are big business, couples are spending more than ever before on getting married, and marriage ceremonies are increasingly elaborate. It is therefore timely to reflect on the rites of marriage, as well as the right to marry (or t to marry), and the relationship between them. To this end, this new interdisciplinary collection brings together scholars from numerous fields, including law, sociology, anthropology, psychology, demography, theology and art and design. Focusing on England and Wales, it explores in depth the specific issues arising from this jurisdiction's Anglican heritage, demographic development, current laws and social practices.
- Author BiographyJoanna Miles is a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Cambridge. Perveez Mody is a Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. Rebecca Probert is a Professor at the School of Law, University of Warwick.
