Publisher Comments:

The term "wife" is fraught with conflicting connotations for many young women today. In this provocative collection of essays, writers in their 20s and 30s discuss how they're navigating the waters of sanctified long-term relationships.

Synopsis:

Featuring such contributors as Juhu Thukral, Rachel Fudge, Kristy Harcourt, and Leslie Miller, a powerful collection of essays defines what it means to be a spouse in today's society, from a woman trying to cope with being identified as half of a couple to a woman who is attempting to balance a care

Synopsis:

The term “wife” is fraught with conflicting connotations for many young women today. Although the word suggests companionship and commitment, its weighted with the knowledge that marriage is a male-dominated institution in which women have been subservient for centuries. In this provocative collection of essays, writers in their twenties and thirties discuss how theyre navigating the waters of sanctified long-term relationships. Juhu Thukral speaks of marrying to please her traditional Indian parents; Rachel Fudge wonders whether alternative ceremonies can lead to greater equality in marriage; Kate Epstein tries to balance motherhood with a career; Kristy Harcourt, a lesbian, discusses her ambivalence about marriage ceremonies; and Leslie Miller struggles with being identified as half of a couple.
