(Un)tying the Knot: Ideal and Reality in Asian Marriage
Gavin W. Jones, Kamalini Ramdas
NUS Press, 2004 - Social Science - 232 pages
What is happening to marriage in Asia? Traditional models of marriage in Asia are under siege. Increasing levels of education, changing roles of women, and upheavals in the nature of employment and economic opportunities are affecting the demography of marriage. Factors such as the age at which men and women marry, the proportion of the population that remains single, the stability of marriages, the number of cross-culture and inter-ethnic marriages, and decisions about bearing children all contribute significantly to the evolving landscape of the family in Asia. (Un)tying the Knot is a collection of essays by scholars and social activists that explore aspects of marriage and divorce in Southeast and East Asia, India and beyond.
