Focuses on the ethnographic research and interviews to explore what these prenuptial events mean to women participants and what they tell us about the complexity and ambiguity of gender roles. This book also argues that prenuptial rituals contribute to the stabilization of gender inequalities.

Pressestimmen

Something Old, Something Bold shows how the sexual revolution has transformed the way contemporary brides approach marriage." - Elizabeth Pleck, author of Cinderella Dreams: The Allure of the Lavish Wedding"
