Most individuals would get married at some point in their lifetime and a significant proportion of these individuals would marry more than once. The fraction of individuals who remain single over their lifetime is in fact very small. Marriage as a social union between spouses had existed since the 1200 BC across many cultures. Academics from all areas have taken a keen interest in studying this institution. They have been interested in understanding its many forms, origins, how it evolves and the forces that affect its formation and its effect of our daily lives. Marriage as an institution has many sides to it. The activities in this Week 7 program are designed to look at the many facets of marriage. The program will draw connections with Family and Gender in CSI and provide opportunities to collect and analyze data on marriage.
