When "The Future of Marriage" was published a decade ago it was immediately acclaimed as a classic contribution to the literature of marriage and of sex roles. In it, the eminent sociologist Jessie Bernard argued that in every marriage there are actually two marriages-his and hers-and that sociological data reveals that marriage is more beneficial for men than for women. In a new edition of this pioneering work, Bernard provides a fresh introduction and update showing what has changed and what has remained the same since her book was first published

About the author (1982)

A pioneer American feminist sociologist, Jessie Bernard conducted groundbreaking research in the area of gender roles and the changing character of the family. She studied with Pitirim A. Sorokin at the University of Minnesota and received her Ph.D. from Washington University in 1935. Bernard began her career in sociology as a promoter of social positivism but later became an outspoken feminist. She is perhaps best known for her work on gender roles and the future of relationships between men and women.
