Until just yesterday, no society--monogamous or polygamous--had defined marriage as anything other than a male-female union. With clear and cogent arguments, What Is Marriage? explains the rational basis of this historic consensus. It defeats the arguments for recognizing same-sex partnerships as marriages and shows how doing so would harm the common good. Originally published in the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, this book's core argument quickly became the year's most widely read essay of more than 300,000 scholarly articles posted on the Social Sciences Research Network. Now expanded to address a flurry of prominent responses, What Is Marriage? stands poised to meet its moment as few books of this generation have. If the marriage debate in America is decided in the next few years, it will be either with this book's help, or despite its powerful arguments. Rhodes Scholar Sherif Girgis, Princeton University professor Robert P. George, and Ryan T. Anderson, editor of the online journal Public Discourse, provide a devastating critique of the claim that equality requires redefining marriage. They point out that any assessment of what "marriage equality" demands depends on first determining what marriage is--what sort of relationships must be treated as essentially the same. They defend the principle that marriage, as a comprehensive union ordered to family life, requires a man and a woman. And they argue for the great social benefits of enshrining this principle in law. Most compellingly, they show that those who embrace same-sex civil marriage leave themselves no firm ground--none--for not recognizing as marriages every relationship type describable in polite English, including multiple-partner ("polyamorous") sexual unions. Finally, What Is Marriage? decisively answer common objections: that the historic view is rooted in bigotry (like laws forbidding interracial marriage); that it is callous to people's needs; that it can't show the harm of recognizing same-sex couplings, or the point of recognizing infertile ones; and that it treats a mere "social construct" as if it were natural, or an unreasoned religious view as if it were rational.

The New York Times bestseller from the author of A Homemade Life and the blog Orangette about opening a restaurant with her new husband: “You’ll feel the warmth from this pizza oven...cheerfully honest...warm and inclusive, just like her cooking” (USA TODAY). When Molly Wizenberg married Brandon Pettit, he was a trained composer with a handful of offbeat interests: espresso machines, wooden boats, violin-building, and ice cream–making. So when Brandon decided to open a pizza restaurant, Molly was supportive—not because she wanted him to do it, but because the idea was so far-fetched that she didn’t think he would. Before she knew it, he’d signed a lease on a space. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be a reality, and all of Molly’s assumptions about her marriage were about to change. Together they built Delancey: gutting and renovating the space on a cobbled-together budget, developing a menu, hiring staff, and passing inspections. Delancey became a success, and Molly tried to convince herself that she was happy in their new life until—in the heat and pressure of the restaurant kitchen—she realized that she hadn’t been honest with herself or Brandon. With evocative photos by Molly and twenty new recipes for the kind of simple, delicious food that chefs eat at home, Delancey explores that intimate territory where food and life meet. This moving and honest account of two people learning to give in and let go in order to grow together is “a crave-worthy memoir that is part love story, part restaurant industry tale. Scrumptious” (People).

Gays Ain T Got A Civil Right To Get Married Neither Do Straights

This book provides the solution to the gay marriage debate by making a simple suggestion: Remove civil rights from marriage for both gays and straights. This move would provide gays with the legal rights and responsibilities of marriage while allowing right-wing religious followers to protect the sanctity of their beliefs. The Anonymous, MD points to modern-day baptisms and funerals, which show how religious ceremonies already co-exist with civil traditions. Marriage should not be a civil right for anyone. Instead, it should be a commitment that defines a non-legal relationship. A civil union, on the other hand, should be a commitment that defines a legal relationship, and that legal relationship should be a civil right for anyone. Civil unions -- not marriages -- should be required for anyone seeking legal relationship status. In Gays Ain't Got a Civil Right to Get Married! (neither do straights), The Anonymous, MD takes readers on a personal journey to demonstrate how this issue affects everyone -- even those who are not on one of the two hotly-contested sides. The Anonymous, MD is neither for nor against gay marriage but wants to overcome the lack of logic used to frame the current debate. In this book, The Anonymous, MD offers examples of canon law and civil rights, politicians and prostitutes, Catholics and Mormons, S/M and incense, and gay-sex and the afterlife to graphically illustrate the sensibly simple solution. The Anonymous, MD graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in philosophy and pre-med. He is a board-certified physician currently practicing medicine and has been a lecturer and author for his surgical specialty. He lives out West with his wife and dog and enjoys reading, hiking and performing surgery. For more information, visit the book's website The author can be contacted at [email protected]
