POLS-470-01: Marriage and the Law

Although many of you will marry, some of you will not.

This class will introduce you to the legal, moral, historical, and empirical aspects of the institution of civil marriage. The readings will be interdisciplinary. We shall discuss normative issues as well, like whether government should promote marriage, whether it should be abolished, and whether its legal definition should be expanded to cover more than two persons.
