In a recent interview, John Heber, a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, explained how marriage has evolved over the last century.
Heber is a co-author of the new book “The Making of Marriage,” a history of marriage in the United States.
He is also the author of “Marriage: An American History.”
The book explores marriage’s changing dynamics, from the beginnings of the institution and how it became an institution to its current state and the ways in which it is viewed in the country.
As part of his work with the book, Heber interviewed two of the nation’s most famous historians, Richard Hofstadter and Henry Adams, about their thoughts on the evolution of marriage over time.
“I’ve always been interested in how the marriage system evolved, what it is today, and how people have adapted to the system,” Heber said.
He and his co-authors analyzed over 4,000 years of records from both the United Kingdom and the United Sates to look at how marriage developed and changed.
They then examined the relationship between different demographic groups.
They looked at people who were married at different points in time, including early America, during the 19th century, the early 20th century and the middle and late 20th centuries.
They also examined the effects of social factors on marriage.
For example, they looked at the relationship of early America’s social and economic conditions to the institution of marriage.
“People were not just in bed and waiting for the wedding day, they were living a very busy life.
They were working in factories, at school, in the workforce,” Hebery said.”
And so we were trying to find out how people were getting on in life.”
Hofstadter, who was born in 1855, said he was a little hesitant when he began to understand marriage’s role in the modern American family.
“There was a time when we had so many different types of marriages.
The first marriage, the first marriage between a man and a woman, the marriage between two or more women, a couple of women, couples, families, etc., that there were no rules about the type of marriage that you could get into.
It was not as much a structured system as it is now,” Hofstadters wife, Virginia, said.
“So it’s really interesting to me that we have so many variations of marriage, but we have a single set of rules for marriage, so I think we’re in a very good position to figure out how to make it work.”
Adams said that the modern family had a lot to do with the evolution and spread of marriage from the 16th century to the mid-20th century.
“What happened was that women got into the workforce and were engaged in the service of society, so they started to take care of the children.
And this made them more likely to have children and less likely to marry,” Adams said.
Hofstader said that marriage was the institution for many, many years before marriage was legal in the U.S. and that the institution began to change in the mid 20th Century.
“Marriage in the early 1900s was a sort of a social institution, where you would have to go to church, you had to marry someone, you went to a certain social institution and you’d have to do certain things.
And then by the mid 1900s, marriage really began to become a social act,” Hofstader explained.”
That was a change that was very significant.
Marriage became a social obligation.
You had to have a family.
You were expected to have kids, and if you didn’t, you were punished.
That was a very different system of life than it is in the 21st century,” Hofstedt said.
Adams said he found the changes to marriage in society to be very dramatic and to reflect what he believed were the societal changes of the time.
He continued, “In the 19-century, it’s very clear that the family was the most important institution.
It became the foundation of society.
It provided the stability of society.””
In the 20th-century we had the explosion of modern culture, which was changing the world.
People were living in a much more sophisticated way.
So it was clear that marriage would have a lot more importance in that time period,” Adams added.”
It was an enormous shift in society that took place and it affected marriage in a profound way,” Hofstaetter said.
