The book is a history of marriage, from the earliest times to the present day. It is a history of transformations in the ideology of marriage, in the institutions of marriage, in the customs surrounding marriage, and in the practices of marriage. It is not concerned with the history of love.

On the one hand, this is a history of marriage, from the days when it was all about property to the present day. On the other hand, it is a history of the modern idea of love. Marriage, now, is all about love.

A History of Marriage is a 2005 book by Stephanie Coontz, in which she recounts the history of marriage as a social institution. Coontz argues that marriage has become more meaningful over time, as it has evolved from a relationship of financial and social necessity to one of emotional fulfillment and companionship.
